The Roundup -

Sidney Fire Dept Annual Breakfast June 1


Once again, the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department is preparing for our annual fundraiser. We will be hosting our 24th Annual Free Will Breakfast at the Fire Hall on Sunday June 1, 2014 from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. The breakfast will consist of French toast, sausage, scrambled eggs, juice and coffee. The fire department will also have an open house that morning, which will include different demonstrations and truck rides for kids of all ages.

The Sidney Volunteer Fire Department not only responds to fire calls in Sidney, but all of Richland County. We are proud of the fact that the Sidney Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department, and is able to operate on a limited budget. Each year, more than 2,000 hours are donated for training and maintenance and more than 5,000 man hours are spent responding to fires and other emergency calls.

We now have a foundation for the fire department. The Sidney Fire Foundation is a tax exempt organization under Section 501 (C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; therefore your contribution is fully tax deductible. In addition, if you have a corporation or partnership and you designate your contribution as a permanent endowment fund contribution, you may qualify for federal a 20% tax credit for state tax purpose in addition to the deduction for federal tax purposes. The Montana tax credit is a very beneficial tax break as you receive a 20% tax credit. With the maximum state tax rate being 6.9%, you may get an additional 13.1% tax benefit. To take advantage of this tax credit, please issue the check out of your pass-through entity payable to the Sidney Fire Foundation and designate your contribution to go to the permanent endowment fund. If you have any questions regarding this foundation, please feel free to call Ken @ (406) 433-2092.

In case you are unable to join us at the breakfast, we would like to thank you in advance for your generosity. We are very thankful for the unbelievable support we receive from the community, city government and county government. Please come join us on Sunday, June 1, 2014, for the 24th Annual Free Will Breakfast. Donations in any amount will be greatly appreciated and will help provide us with the means to protect and serve our community.
