Fund Est. 2005
The Decatur Volunteer Fire Department covers 81 square miles in Adams County. It encompasses the city of Decatur and four townships.
In addition to fighting fires and following their oath to protect and serve, the volunteer firemen and the Decatur Volunteer Fire Department auxiliary (spouses of fire dept personnel) sponsor fundraisers each year. These funds are used to fulfill their mission: to serve the community.
This endowed fund is used as an annual scholarship award. Students who have documented community association are invited to apply for this annual scholarship.
