One of the most well known symbols of the Silverton 4th of July are the S.V.F.D. Donation Boots seen all over town.

Our supporting businesses present an S.V.F.D. Fireman’s Boot on their counter as a way for customers to easily add a few bucks to the cause. On the 4th of July our Volunteer Fire Department collects these Boots and then uses the funds to help out with everything from funding the fireworks and events around town, to making sure there are enough first responders on call to ensure a safe celebration for everyone.


To find one of the S.V.F.D. Boot please visit the following businesses and donate your spare change, or whatever you can afford. We appreciate all donations, large and small!

It is not uncommon for us to find $100 bills or more in the kitty. If you plan on donating any significant amount make sure to take advantage of our 501 (c)(3) status.



Not only can you support an amazing cause, but you can get the best write off ever. Imagine sitting back to watch all the events around town on the 4th (including the fireworks at $25,000+) while knowing that your company made it all happen.  Beyond that, we’ll feature your business on our official site and promote you on our Instagram and our Facebook feeds with just under 10,000 followers each. At varying donation levels we can promote your brand in any way you’d like.

The Silverton 4th of July Association is a 501 (c) (3) associated with the redevelopment district in Silverton, Colorado and all the bonuses that involves. Feel free to contact us with questions. We’re ready and able to make this process as easy as possible for you to understand and present to your boards.
