About the Venice Firefighters Benevolent Fund


The Venice Firefighters Benevolent Fund (VFBF) has a primary goal to help others in need. To ensure the most effective use of donations, we operate as an all volunteer organization. We also use a volunteer case worker to review critical requests for the fund. We are a 501C3 non-profit charity.


These are just a few of the needs that the Venice Firefighters Benevolent Fund has been able to meet:

  • Financial assistance for medical needs.

  • Provided a scooter and batteries for a local special needs resident.

  • Provided vehicle repairs for a family in need to ensure transportation to work.

  • Hosted a Fire Department Christmas dinner for families with special needs children.


We also work cooperatively with local vendors in providing assistance. Our main source of revenue has been the chicken BBQ. Another source of revenue the VFBF is the rewards program.


Please consider this your special invitation to be part of something wonderful in your community.
