Funding Our Fire Department


Annual Fund Raiser   Our 20th Anniversary Cook-Off and Fund Raiser has been postponed because of the Covid-19 Virus.  We are currently planning to resumne our cook-off on June 11, 2022. 

In an effort to raise operating funds for 2021, we have enlisted the help of HiBid.com to auction off new firearms that were purchased for our 2020 fundraiser.  Please visit their site at: Ft. McKavett, TX VFD Benefit Auction | Live and Online Auctions on HiBid.com to register to bid and to view the list of firearms.  Bidding opens Tuesday, June 29 and closes onThursday July 8th.  Your continued support is greatfully appreciated.


Give a Gift/ Make a Donation  We begin our yearly fund raising project every spring. We send out a letter to those local land owners who do not live in our area letting them know what we have accomplished over the last year and asking for their continued support of our department.  The donations that we receive as a result of these letters in 2018 along with unsolicited donations from local ranchers and businesses amounted to about 37% of our gross revenue.  These donations are a vital part of our fund raising activities.
