Annual Giving Program

Whether it’s a firefighter rescuing a victim from a fire or a member teaching young children the importance of fire safety, SBVFD volunteers make a difference in people’s lives every day. All gifts, regardless of size, make a tremendous impact in the services we deliver to you, our neighbor.

Make a difference!

The Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department is committed to providing the highest level of emergency response services and to keeping pace with the changing needs of our community. You can help ensure this happens by making a gift to the SBVFD Annual Giving program! Your donation will help provide funds for equipment, training, recruitment of new volunteers, apparatus and vehicles, tools and other critical needs.

“As a lifelong emergency responder, firefighter/paramedic, fire officer, fire chief, and trainer, I have had the opportunity to train with and witness hundreds of emergency response organizations, USA and abroad. I can honestly say there is no more a professional and dedicated organization than those members of the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department. Sound Beach truly optimizes the strength of the fire service and the community of Greenwich.”

Success in meeting our Annual Giving program goals is vital every year. The Annual Giving program not only provides a major source of funding for equipment and training, it also gives us invaluable flexibility in spending where the need is greatest or when special opportunities arise. For example, the Department has recently begun training and purchasing equipment to be better prepared to respond to flooding emergencies such as those experienced in last year’s April Nor’easter. Because the money can be immediately put to use, we are able to maintain our margin of excellence.
