Financial Information

FIRE is dedicated to using donations efficiently for our programs to achieve the best outcomes. We keep our overhead (administrative and fundraising costs) low, maximizing the percentage of every dollar available for our programs. In 2015, 94% of all funds received by FIRE were spent on programming expenses.


We have provided links below for our 501c.3 IRS tax exempt determination letter, most annual reports, and IRS Form 990s. You may visit Guidestar for additional information and previous years’ IRS Form 990s.
