They have a reputation of delivering what they promise and conducting business with the highest degree of professionalism, integrity and compliance with the law. OPOA would not associate with anything less.
The process Community Fundraisers, Inc. uses is very structured so that you will know it is a genuine OPOA sanctioned contact.

Monies raised from this benefit will provide for additional specialized law enforcement training for Association members beyond what taxpayer money can provide such as:
The Oregon Peace Officers Association is Oregon’s largest law enforcement association with over 1,200 federal, state and local law enforcement officers included in its membership. Established in 1968, the primary purpose of the Oregon Peace Officers Association is for the upgrading of the law enforcement profession in Oregon and for promoting community safety through its activities and programs.
The members do not have the experience or time to administer a fundraising effort of this magnitude and, therefore, have found it beneficial to enter into a contractual agreement with Community Fundraisers to conduct the fundraising operation, a relationship that has spanned the past 10 years. As part of this agreement, the Association is not responsible for any incurred expenses such as phone bills, wages, postage, printing, rent, insurance, etc. We find this to be the best approach as under this arrangement the Association realizes a greater net return than from most other forms of fundraising, with virtually no risk of taking a loss, if any, please visit our website at www.opoa.info and click on the link to fundraising.
The Association is not a charity but is a non-profit professional organization. Therefore, donations are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. Thank you for your generous support of the Oregon Peace Officers Association.
