Our Mission


Our mission is to raise money for cadets accepted to attend Fresno City College Fire Academy by providing financial assistance to offset the cost of tuition, uniforms, and/or supplies in order to support cadets in their pursuit of higher education, and be a part of making their dream of becoming a firefighter a reality.

Our Committee

The Deaver Fund Committee (DFC) was formed in January 2017 with a vision of funding scholarships by organizing fun and rosperous fundraiser events and encouraging community participation. Currently, the committee consists of approximately 20 members. The DFC meets monthly, and biweekly prior to scheduled events, to discuss new ideas, progress, and any obstacles that may arise during the planning and implementation phases of the event.

The DFC is divided into several subcommittees that handle different aspects of planning and organizing the fundraiser. Subcommittees within the DFC are headed by a subcommittee chair who is responsible for keeping the subcommittee focused and on task in order to meet deadlines. The subcommittee chair meets and reports regularly with the executive board.
