Thank You: National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Donation

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation




September 2, 2016

Mr. Kevin Rowe, Founder
Rowe Family Charitable Foundation
2701 East Camelback Road Suite 140
Phoenix, AZ. 85016-4323

Dear Mr. Rowe:

We know you have many options for your philanthropic dollars. I would like to thank you for choosing the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). Your recent gift of $1,000.00 for the 2016 Salt River 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb extends your reach. No matter what program you wish to help with your giving, your gift touches many in the fire service and beyond.

Since its inception, the NFFF has honored and supported the families and coworkers of firefighters who died in the line of duty. Your donation ensures we will continue to offer comfort and assistance to families and coworkers who lost the hero in their lives. We would like to share these personal stories that show how important your donation is to the families:

“Thanks to the NFFF, my son Matt was able to achieve his dream and follow in his father’s footsteps of becoming a firefighter. Matt’s father, Captain Kenny Woitalewicz, died after trying to save an elderly woman in a house fire in 2004. The donations and the support the NFFF receives allowed my son to attend college, and the NFFF was there when we needed them. Thank you for supporting the NFFF.” Melissa Woitalewicz

“I appreciate so much all of those returning survivors, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and staff, and others who were there for me. I now know that I am not alone on this journey, that others are there with me.” Dreama Floersch, wife of Richard J. Floersch

As we look to the future the NFFF faces even more challenges and your support is critical to our ability to carry out our mission. Your support of the families and coworkers of America’s fallen fire heroes makes a difference in their lives.

Chief Ronald Jon Siarnicki
Executive Director

Thank You: “Come Together” Concert Sponsorship

Kevin and Cindy,

Thank you SO MUCH for sponsoring the “Come Together” Concert which will benefit Phoenix Rescue Mission. Your $5,000 gift will help provide food, water, clothing and most importantly HOPE to the homeless and hungry in our community.

Every year in May, Lerner and Rowe Gives Back’s Golf Tournament is the unofficial start of Code Red Heat Relief. With partners like YOU, I am pleased to announce that Code Red 2016 raised $1,000,000 for Code Red AND we collected over 1,000,000 bottles of water to distribute to keep people alive on the streets during our blistering summer. Can you imagine how many lives that saved?

On behalf of all the men, women and children that we serve, thank you for your heart for The Least, The Last, and The Lost.

Peace and every good,

Thank You Note – National Football Foundation

Mason-Moran_Danny White AwardKevin,

Thank you again for sponsoring the Danny White Quarterback Award for the 23rd Annual Champions Luncheon last month at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort.

The recipient was Mason Moran of Chandler High School and presented by Jack Lengyel in Danny’s absence.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated as we inspire our youth to compete in the classroom as well on the gridiron and assume leadership roles at their high school and future college campuses.

Our new Executive Director, Mark Weiss, will be reaching out to you shortly so that we may present you with the traditional Football. I was able to use your ad from the Spring banquet in the luncheon program by doing some creative photoshop techniques.

Wishing you well as we move into the 2016 year and hope to see you soon. Be sure to check out the website at

Best always,

Janie Riddle,
