THE IRS HAS GRANTED FD CHAPLAIN SERVICES, INC.
501 (c)(3) Tax-EXempt Status
FD Chaplain Services, Inc. was born in the midst of Hurricane Irma, September 11, 2017. An initial organizational meeting had been scheduled for 9/11, the anniversary of the devastating attacks on the United States that killed 343 firefighters and many civilians. The impending hurricane with its anticipated storm surge forced the postponement of that meeting. Founder Mark Goodman texted back and forth on 9/11 with Nate Burley and Jenna Sherman to verify their safety in the storm and to affirm the decision to create an organization to promote and fund the work of Fire Chaplaincy, and to provide for training to equip Chaplains to serve their departments and communities.
