Our mission is to raise funds for Milwaukee Firefighters and their families who have suffered unfortunate hardships.
Our vision is to provide emotional and physical support and financial assistance to Milwaukee Firefighters during times of need. We accomplish this by partnering with local businesses and non-profit organizations and planning and hosting fundraising events throughout the year.
We are proud to be a 501(c) (3) organization created and managed by Milwaukee Firefighters, and all members of Ignite The Spirit - Milwaukee are unpaid volunteers. Contributions to Ignite the Spirit - Milwaukee are tax-deductible to the extent determined by law. All donations intended for benevolence provide direct financial support to Milwaukee Firefighters and their families.
We are in place to assist Milwaukee Firefighters who have built their lives around helping others. In 2017, multiple members of the Milwaukee Fire Department required assistance that could not be formally given by anyone other than their fellow Firefighters. Though many answered the call, Ignite the Spirit - Milwaukee was established in 2018 as a way to proactively fundraise and ensure immediate assistance is available when needed.
Firefighters are known to go to great lengths to help others in need. Ignite the Spirit - Milwaukee aims to ensure that our Brothers and Sisters are not left to battle life’s hardships alone.
