Maltese Cross Leadership Giving Society

The Maltese Cross Society of the Burn Prevention Network are individuals, couples and families who make a special level of personal commitment to prevent burns and empower burn survivors. This elite group of local philanthropists is an alliance of successful, community-minded individuals and business leaders who invest $1,000 or more annually. By making these generous gifts, society members support our mission, take an active role in our success and make sure no family suffers through the pain of a burn.

BPN Board Member, Lou Puentes talks with Maltese Cross members, Chrissie Hartner and Brian Hartner

Over a thousand years ago, the Saracens used lighted torches and highly flammable liquid to set their enemies, the Knights of St. John, on fire. Hundreds of knights were burned to death while others fought to put out the flames. The survivors of that battle were awarded a Maltese Cross in honor of their heroic efforts to extinguish the fires and save their fellow soldiers. Today, the Maltese Cross is recognized around the world as a symbol of fire service. It is frequently painted on fire trucks, worn on firefighters’ uniforms, and chosen as firefighter tattoos. Nearly all fire departments feature it in their insignia.

The Burn Prevention Network is closely partnered with both career and volunteer fire departments.  While we honor their bravery and heroism by naming our society in their honor, we work to prevent fires so they do not need to risk their lives unnecessarily. This symbol reminds us of the death and destruction that fires can cause and the urgency for us to work together as a community to prevent them.

We are grateful to our Maltese Cross Society members who show their passion for this vital mission by contributing time, talent and financial resources to transform Pennsylvania.

You automatically become a member of the society when you make donations totaling $1000 or more in any year.  Please contact Cori Rolón with any questions.
