The Fire Foundation of Colorado Springs is a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding the Colorado Springs Fire Department. Through donations of funds and resources, the Foundation supports Colorado Springs firefighters by promoting excellence within the department and improving public safety for the city of Colorado Springs by providing resources not otherwise readily available from traditional sources.

It all starts at The Legacy Loop Plaza

Fontanero Trail Head. 
1800 Recreation Way 
Colorado Springs, Co. 80907

Additional info

The Fire Foundation is committed to raising funds to fund the purchase of 119 tactical vests and helmets to outfit every firefighting apparatus in the city. Each ballistic vest and helmet package costs $2,000, but with community support, we can protect those who sacrifice so much to protect us. The Foundation is pursuing this effort because the city budget doesn’t include the financial resources to do this in a timely fashion. Thus, the Foundation is reaching out to local businesses and residents to support our firefighters.

 

Business and civic leaders established the Foundation in 2015 as an independent, nonprofit organization to strengthen the Colorado Springs Fire Department’s services to our growing city. That growth expands the challenges our firefighters face daily. The Fire Foundation provides an important avenue for the private sector to come alongside our firefighters to support the department’s mission.
