About Us

Washington, D.C. Fire Fighters Memorial Foundation was founded in August of 2017 as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit registered in the District of Columbia.

Our sole focus is to raise the funds to build the memorial in a centrally located site within the District of Columbia boundaries and to maintain the memorial in perpetuity.
