About The Wilmington Firefighters Benevolent Fund Inc

Mission: The purpose of the Wilmington Firefighters Benevolent Fund is to provide financial assistance and support towards a variety of initiatives including: managing the Lakeview Road Memorial, and other firefighter-related goodwill and altruistic initiatives.

This fund was created following the devastating and tragic Lakeview Road fire in September 2016 that killed Capt. Christopher Leach, Lt. Jerry Fickes, and Lt. Ardythe Hope.

Thank you all who have previously donated to this fund! 
Past donations have helped to build and maintain the Lakeview Road Memorial, which honors the sacrifices of our fallen firefighters and their families. Current donations will assist in completing the final phase of the memorial, which includes installing a fence around the property and continued maintenance/upkeep.
