Why Support FASNY?

FASNY strives to provide programming, training and resources for its members and community. FASNY relies heavily on the support of its members, and now more than ever, we need your help.

As a devoted volunteer, FASNY needs your help with a new fundraising initiative called the FASNY Fund. As a member organization and a 501c-3, we really need your assistance and commitment with supporting the longevity of our programs through our efforts to provide information, education and training for the volunteer fire service throughout the state. Gifts of all sizes truly benefit our members and the communities we serve by providing funding for scholarships, fire prevention and life safety, youth programs, training and education and The FASNY Firemen’s Home in Hudson, among other important items. Your support makes the difference between opportunity and limitations.

FASNY is committed to providing support to the volunteer fire service of the State of New York. Through its membership, FASNY provides up-to-date education and training opportunities, fights for state and national legislation, awards scholarships and provides a haven for retired volunteer firefighters at the FASNY Firemen’s Home. But in order to offer the resources and programs that help volunteer fire and emergency service departments thrive throughout New York State, FASNY must rely heavily upon the backing of its membership and community.

Please help to ensure the vitality and longevity of the volunteer fire service in New York State.

As part of the fundraising initiative, you have the option to designate your donation to support a specific program of your choice:


FASNY General Fund

The FASNY Fund represents the areas of greatest need. These include legislative support, training and education, fire prevention and life safety and youth programs, among other important initiatives.



Firemen’s Home: Operation Small Change

Donations to Operation Small Change help support operations of the Home and provide financial stability to our organization.



Firemen’s Home: Chapel Fund

Donations to the Chapel Fund provide the crucial assistance needed to fund improvement projects set forth by the Firemen’s Home. These donations make a lasting difference in the peaceful, spiritual atmosphere of the Chapel and in the lives of the residents.



FASNY Scholarship Fund

Every year since 1998, top service oriented high school seniors have been awarded a FASNY Gerard J. Buckenmeyer Volunteer Scholarship to continue their post secondary education at a college of their choice. Your donation supports the continuation of this program.
