Guymon Firefighter’s Club

April 7, 2018

The Guymon Firefighter’s Club raises funds for Guymon’s volunteer firefighters. Before partnering with the Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation, the Club took care of their own financials. When they started raising more and more money, they discussed obtaining their 501(c)(3) status, but determined it was not in the Club’s best interest.

That’s when they discovered the option of partnering with GCEF. This would allow the Club to use GCEF’s 501(c)(3) status and thereby allow their donors to make tax-deductible donations. The GCEF helped the Club make a smooth transition into partnership, and now allows them to operate efficiently and legally.

The annual Kenny Huckins Memorial Golf Tournament is held in August at Sunset Hills Golf Course in Guymon, Ok. The golf tournament is both in honor of Kenny Huckins, who dedicated countless hours to the Guymon Fire Department, as well as a fund raiser for the firefighters club.

According to Fire Chief, Dean McFadden, “The [GCEF] is a great asset to those who are looking at or already have clubs that would like to be tax exempt.”
