WHAT WE DO
About Our Mission
The Naperville Professional Firefighters for a Cause is a 501c.3 non-profit organization that was born from the desire of the brothers and sisters of the Naperville Professional Firefighters Local 4302 to do something more for the community they serve.
The mission of the NPFFC is to seek out reputable organizations and charitable efforts that are serving the greater good in the Naperville community. We strive to serve in partnership with these organizations in their respective missions.
Since our inception in 2011, we have worked with more than a dozen local organizations to help sustain and jump start their respective missions. We have focused our impact on rallying our membership to volunteer, donate and raise awareness for the important work of the nonprofit missions in our community.
In 2021, several communities on the southside of Naperville were devastated by a tornado. Not only did we respond on duty, but we also activated off-duty, collecting and distributing more than $19,000 in donations to the various organizations supporting the residents.
Million Dollar, Baby!
In 2021, we hit a big benchmark as we crossed the threshold of a decade in operation! In 2024, we are looking to spin the ticker past the $1,000,000 mark of funds raised. Stay tuned!

We make it our mission to have good times for a good cause. Through a series of annual events and an open mind to new ideas for new events, our calendar keeps busy. Read on to see what's coming up next.
GOOD TIMES SUPPORTING GREAT CAUSES
The Bunk Bed Buildout
NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN
The NPFFC and the Naperville Fire Department are partnering with the non-profit Sleep in Heavenly Peace to embed their mission into the Naperville Community.
SHP believes that all children deserve a safe and comfortable place to sleep. So many great charities provide clothing, meals, and toys to families in need. But as wonderful as this aid is, few organizations offer suitable beds and bedding to the kids in these families. Sleep in Heavenly Peace sets out to help fill that gap. If a child needs a bed, we want to make sure they get one. Their motto: No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
The Chari-Tee Time Golf Outing
The Chari-Tee Time golf outing is one of our original fundraising events. The outing features 18 holes of championship golf with cart, as well as premium food and beverages for the entire day. All proceeds from this year's outing will go to support the work of the non-profit organization, Bike Bald.
The Firehouse Foodfight
The Firehouse Foodfight is a collective effort combined with a creative competition that is staged to rally the members of the fire department along with the local community to support local families in need.
