CFC Open Season - Support the FLEOA Foundation

CFC Open Season - Please Support the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation (CFC # 54726)

Dear FLEOA Member,

In the law enforcement profession, and in the course of life, bad situations with dire outcomes may visit us.  ‎The question we have to ask ourselves is, who will be there to help when tragedy comes knocking, unannounced and uninvited?

Now that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is upon us, it's time to consider which charities we would like to contribute to. I respectfully ask that for those of you still in government service, you consider the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation as a viable choice for your contributions. The F.L.E.O.A.  Foundation is a charitable organization and is proud to be listed in the CFC program under its number,54726. These may not be the winning numbers for Lotto, but they are the right numbers to ensure you'll have help in a crisis situation. For our retired and supporting members, please consider making a contribution directly to our Foundation.

Thanks to the inspired leadership of our fallen hero Robert "Bob" Van Etten and other great volunteer leaders such as John Bannon, Tom Casey and Steve Levy, the Foundation has been supporting FLEOA members and their families for over 20 years. Whether it's financial assistance for the family of a fallen or severely wounded hero/member, help with medical bills‎, or scholarship support for your children, the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation is on call to deliver.

The Foundation's proud mantra has been, and continues to be, "When tragic circumstances confront a Federal Law Enforcement Officer and their family, help will be just a phone call away."

To date, serving as the first responder for its members, the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation has contributed over $1.8 million in support for the federal law enforcement community.  ‎Here's how the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation applied the money it raised from generous contributions like yours:

*Line of Duty Fatalities: $645,000
*Scholarship Grants: $500,000
*Charitable Grants: $330,000
*Medical Assistance: $378,000

While the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation proudly serves as the first responder for F.L.E.O.A. Members, it's important to note that those running the organization are all volunteers. If you compare the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation's program/administrative expenses listed in the CFC program with other charities, you'll see what a great job the Foundation does keeping it's operating expenses down. The Foundation's leadership understands the charity's priorities‎: use the funds raised to render timely support and financial assistance to F.L.E.O.A. Members in need.

These are difficult financial times, and the economy has not created an environment conducive to giving. Nonetheless, the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation relies on the generous contributions from both individual donors and corporate sponsors.  All contributions are greatly appreciated, and we hope you'll consider the F.L.E.O.A. Foundation (CFC# 54726) as a meaningful choice for the Combined Federal Campaign.

Stay strong and stay safe, and Don't Go It Alone,

J. Adler
