Truckee Fire Charitable Fund Inc. (TFCF) was born of ideals from generations past; community service, volunteerism, and public safety. We aim to provide opportunities for public education, scholarships and community service. Our goals are achieved through donations of time and money by members of the organization and the public. In addition, our actions are guided by and executed with the principles from where this organization was fostered, the Fire Service.
Truckee Fire Charitable Fund’s roots grow from what was once Truckee Fire Inc., which was founded in the early 1980’s. Its purpose was to generate funds for the department, which was operated largely on a volunteer basis. Today’s organization continues to be operated by the employees of the Truckee Fire Protection District on a voluntary basis. The main purpose of the TFCF is the funding for the Roy Waters Memorial Scholarship.
Truckee Fire Charitable Fund raises most of its money during our Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast. This is made possible through the generous donations from local businesses and our friends, family and employees who donate their time to put on this event. In exchange for their donation of time and effort, TFCF also donates some of the proceeds from our Pancake Breakfast to local sports teams.
