Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation

Working to create a fire-safe and burn-free Wisconsin


In Wisconsin we experience about 50 deaths, 5,000 severe burn Injuries, and over $225,000,000 in property loss each year. We are working to create a fire safe and burn free Wisconsin through education, safety initiatives, and support for burn survivors, fire fighters, and communities throughout Wisconsin.

In addition to providing stellar programming for burn survivors, fire prevention, fire fighters, and communities, we’ve worked to increase efficiency, create partnerships, and strengthen our organization for the greatest impact possible in the lives of the people we serve. Through planning we further defined the work we do, set and achieved goals for what we want to do, and implemented measurement tools to evaluate our success and guide us forward.

Like most nonprofits with limited staff, resources, and active programs to manage allocating time and resources to general and administration areas of our organization is a challenge. We made time for organizational development and by planning, defining functional areas of responsibility, developing policies and procedures, and implementing internal controls we are ready for continued success as a thriving nonprofit.
