About the Foundation

The D.C. Firefighters Burn Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization founded by active and retired Washington, D.C. Firefighters. Since 2004, the Foundation has been dedicated to assisting in the recovery and rehabilitation of injured firefighters and burn patients in the D.C. Metropolitan Area. We support burn research, treatment, and rehabilitation programs at Washington Hospital Center as well as the Children’s Burn Camp Program. Firefighters and members of the Burn Center have a special empathy for burn survivors. No other group witnesses more of the devastation that fire wreaks on the human body and spirit.

All proceeds go directly back to burn survivor support, programming and education. In 2024, we are already committed to supporting funds to Children's National Hospital, events at Adaptive Sports Center, and sponsoring attendees at Children's Burn Camp.
