Donate to the Raleigh Fire Museum via United Way Combined Campaign
September 21, 2013
Your fire museum has been busy as the days are growing
longer and the seasons are changing. During the second Saturday of September, we co-hosted a “Day with the
Raleigh Fire Department” at the training center. Over sixty people attended, and
many toured the fire museum. We’ve also been promoting the museum around town
with new glossy “rack cards” you may have seen.
We’ve recently installed signage, both on Wilmington Street
and at the training center, to help raise awareness of the museum. We also
recently completed a project to donate copies of the centennial history book to
local and national libraries. You can read about our history at both the
National Fire Academy library and the Library of Congress!
But for these and future projects, we need resources. And we need to raise
money. If your employer is participating in a United Way Combined Campaign this
fall, and if the donation form contains a write-in option, consider a
donation to the Raleigh Fire Museum.
Simply complete the following information in the Write-In
Agencies section of the your form:
Raleigh Fire Museum
P.O. Box 31084
Raleigh, NC, 27622
27-2420541 (Federal ID#)
