The dept. I belong to is strickly volunteer and where I am from considered a non-profit organization, so our funds for equipment and such comes from fund raising and our weekly bingo games, Which does help us keep our heads above water. However we are looking to purchase some newer turnout gear and SCBA's and our fund raising has stalled. So if anyone out there has any newer ideas for us please reply

One thing that has been very succesful for us is a yearly golf outing. We charge so much per team and then have so much per hole sponsors. Besides sponsors donating money we also have prizes donated. We also incorperated a hog raffle into it one year and it did really well, but the newness wore out and we decided to drop it after the second year.
