Capital Campaign Fact Sheet


Live-In Common AreaLive-In Sleeping RoomFame Member's Bunk Room

We are excited to report that Fame’s Willing Hearts Capital Campaign has made great progress since last year. The completed renovations/expansion already have created a safer and more efficient environment for our firefighters, and, overall, are helping make our community safer. Best of all, we can see the campaign finish line just ahead!  If you are able, our hope is that you will make an additional capital campaign gift that will help us finish the campaign! 

Here’s where we stand with the capital campaign and why we still need your help:

- Of the original $2.5 million campaign for phases 1 & 2, we are excited to have raised $2 million so far. This includes taking a loan to make the renovations/expansion operational now.

-  Considering all current gifts and projected sources of revenue for the campaign, we still face the task of raising $500,000 to relieve our membership of the burden of paying off any capital debt in the future. 

- We have also identified additional facility and grounds improvements which we expect will be covered by the $1 million RACP grant awarded recently from the State.  Unfortunately, these grant funds cannot be used to pay for work already completed.

If you can find a way to make a generous contribution now of $100, $500, $1000, or more, you will help free up our active members to focus on training and serving the community and not be continually fundraising.   A significant outright gift now, a pledge over 3 or 5 years, or by including The Fame in your estate plan will enable us to launch a new era for The Fame, debt-free! 

We are excited to say that a generous donor is matching $20,000 raised for the campaign!  That means your contribution will be doubled in value for Fame’s benefit!!  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity as best you can.
