Fort Worth-based WPI Firefighters’ Fund was founded by Della Williams in 1999 to provide financial assistance to the families of firefighters killed or injured in the line of duty. The purpose of the Fund is to help bridge the gap between when tragedy strikes and before benefits kick in – a crucial period during which families, already struggling to cope with pain, uncertainty, and grief, are further burdened with financial difficulties.
Since its founding, the WPI Firefighters’ Fund has provided more than $800,000 in grants to fire departments, injured or fallen firefighters. Ms. Williams has committed to supporting this non-profit by providing administrative expenses, physical office space, and general support. Thanks to the success of StoveTop FireStop®, a product her firm WilliamsRDM invented and manufactures, is just one of many ways the company gives back.

Join us in our effort to provide for the needs of our firefighters and their families by registering for an upcoming fundraising event, becoming a sponsor, volunteering your time – or starting a fundraiser of your own to benefit this cause.
Whether you can give your time or contribute financially, on behalf of those who will be the beneficiaries of your kindness – we thank you. But, there are other ways to help. If you know know a firefighter – volunteer or paid – please make them aware of the WPIFF and encourage them to get to know us and to spread the word among the others on their team. Let them know we’re here – and that we thank them.
This is our third year to host the Charity Golf Tournament. This year we will play at Texas Star in Euless, TX. Participants get to donate to a great cause, play a newly refurbished course, all the range balls you can hit, lots of schwag, a meal before your round, raffle prizes and more.

The FireHouse Challenge is a firefighters only inter-station competitive round. We wanted to do something special for our firefighters and encourage some inter-station competition. Firefighters will have a lower entry fee, with a meal and tournament schwag. And not only will there be pride on the line, the winning station will receive a grant* from the WPI Firefighters’ Fund.

Della Williams and her company, WilliamsRDM, support this non-profit via free office space, paying for all administrative expenses, and providing other general support. The WPI Firefighters’ Fund has no employees: all outreach is conducted by volunteers. This enables the fund to direct all donations directly to fire service personal, injured firefighters, and the families of fallen firefighters in need.
