The Montana State Fire Chiefs Association has received several inquires from groups and individuals who want to help Montana Firefighters and those affected by the fires in Montana. It has also been brought to our attention that many volunteer fire department’s budget and resources have been stretched to the limit. We are so grateful to everyone who wants to help!

MSFCA is not able to take donations because we are a Membership Organization – 501 (c)6, so we have come up with this list of suggestions for donations. If you have other reputable organizations to add to the list, please let us know. Email

In addition, we have started to compile a list of needs from volunteer fire department around the state and we will do our very best to direct the donations to those with the most urgent needs.  If you are a fire department with needs, please send an email to Mikel Robinson with your department needs. We will need to prioritize the giving, so please be very specific with your department needs. It is MSFCA’s intention to ensure funds are directed to those who truly need help.


Montana Wildfire Relief Fund – The Montana Wildfire Relief Fund (MWRF) is a fund established at the Montana Community Foundation (MCF) to efficiently and effectively respond to the current wildfire disaster in Montana and future disasters affecting our state. Volunteer Fire Departments will be eligible to apply for grants from the Montana Wildfire Relief Fund.
