Volunteer Fire District Fundraising Information
Our fire district is a part of
the Linn County, Iowa governmental system. Our Trustees are
appointed to their terms by the Linn County Board of Supervisors.
Our annual operating money comes from a portion of the taxes paid by
the land owners in the district.
Donations to the West Bertram Fire Station and Vehicle Replacement
project are tax deductible and are termed "charitable
contributions." Those generous people donating to the project
receive no tangible material benefit in return for their
contribution. Consequently, the entire amount of their donation
may be used in the computation of their tax obligation for the year the
donation was given to the District.
Donations can be either monetary or they can be "in-kind" donations
such as concrete material, heating systems, plumbing systems, doors,
windows, installation of electrical wiring and so forth. It will
take considerable money, materials, labor and enthusiasm to accomplish
the goal of a new fire station and replacement of one of our large fire
