Throughout this website you will notice that you can raise funds for "in your town" or for specific causes such as our TEAM Aid or TEAM bark programs. You may wonder where straight donations go or where the funding we receive from programs in the "how you can help" suggestion appear? They all end up in what we call our General Fund. These funds are what allows us to help where help is needed. Sometime this comes per a request straight from a fire department themselves, sometime we are able to help someone who is raising funds in their own town and just is a little short on making their mark. When the general funds are full it allows us to keep furthering our mission statement to provide equipment to all front line apparatus's in Southern California. Notice California is last on the list, typically our local fundraisers are for our local departments, the General Funds support, request, then ongoing fundraisers in your town, then our area.
