Annual Fund Drive

Your Annual Donation Helps Us to Help You

Wissahickon Fire Company conducts an annual fund drive to purchase needed emergency apparatus and equipment. Please be generous.  We understand that many organizations ask for money and there are times you feel that you just give and give.  Please remember the Wissahickon Fire Company is a 100%-volunteer organization protecting the residents and businesses of the Township and assisting surrounding townships and boroughs when needed.

We are an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit group of men and women who put their lives on the line in order to save the lives and properties of others. And we do it for NO Pay!  When you donate to WFC, all of your money goes directly to the fire company to purchase needed equipment and apparatus. You can see the equipment and gear your donation goes towards by stopping at either of our stations while our members are there and meet the people that will use the equipment to help our community in its time of need.

Imagine it is 2:00 in the morning and the members of WFC are awakened from a sound sleep.  Someone has reported a fire in their home.  Within minutes, thirty or more professionally-trained men and women respond to your potential disaster.  It happens more often that we would like to think.  We must be prepared for all emergencies.  It’s part of our responsibility to make sure that we provide the best qualified people and adequate, updated equipment to assist you in such emergencies.  Unfortunately, we can’t do it alone.  Without your contribution, we can’t afford the vital equipment and training or provide the necessary maintenance to keep our apparatus in good repair.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If you recently moved into the community and received a letter with the previous resident’s name, you can still send it in. Just correct the name on the reply card and mail it in with your donation. If you did not receive a mailing at all, please call us at 215-646-1266 or you can drop off a tax-deductible donation in the mailbox at our main station at 245 Race Street in Ambler.

REMEMBER – The Wissahickon Fire Company is an IRS-certified 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization.

Thank you for your continued support.


False Phone Solicitations for County Firefighters

There have been reports in surrounding areas of the county that a company is soliciting money for Montgomery County firefighters. The claim is that the money will go to assist local fire companies and firefighters.  Please be aware that this is NOT TRUE.  The county fire organizations did not initiate any solicitations.  We will NOT receive any funds contributed to these organizations.  The Wissahickon Fire Company does not make phone calls or go door-to-door to ask for donations.

We send out an annual fund drive letter that clearly identifies the Wissahickon Fire Company.  Please, if you want to give to YOUR volunteer fire company, donate to the Wissahickon Fire Company directly via the fund drive mailer, drop a check off at either Fire Station, or mail a check with your name and residence address to:  Wissahickon Fire Company, Attn: Annual Fund Drive, 245 E Race Street, Ambler, PA 19002.



lotterycalendarEach lucky Calendar has a 3-digit number assigned to it. This number corresponds to the Daily Number pulled each night of the year by the Pennsylvania Lottery Commission. (Note: If two Daily Numbers are drawn per day, Wissahickon will honor only the EVENING number.) If your calendar number matches the number pulled that night, you win the amount of money listed on your Calendar for that day. The daily cash winnings range from a minimum of $20 to a maximum of $500. Your donation of $20.00 per calendar breaks down to less than 6 cents per day!


This is a fundraiser for the Wissahickon Fire Company. Unlike some other Daily Number-related drawings that are good for only a specific month, your Calendar is good every day of the year. You will win as many times as your number is drawn. There is no limit to your winnings per year! The best part is you don’t even have to keep track of the Numbers yourself. We keep the records and automatically send you your winnings check in the mail.


Calendars are for sale between September and December each year. To join the fun and get your own Calendar, see any Wissahickon Firefighter or stop by the Fire Station on Monday evenings after 7 pm. You can also purchase them at our booth at either the Ambler Oktoberfest or Lower Gwynedd Countrie Picnic. Calendars are also available for sale at Rich’s Other Place restaurant in Spring House and Lynch’s Service Station in Ambler.
