On April 6, 2018, The Bay City Tribune reported that Matagorda Volunteer Fire Deparment was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Three charged in theft from Matagorda VFD." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Bay City Tribune article.


This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern. Please note that this investigation has not concluded and that the allegations being investigated have not been confirmed by the U.S. legal system.
