Part of a letter I send out....
Here's more information about OfficerDown.US, ...
We at OfficerDown.US are LVMPD LEO family for 25 years. We provide a portal/website (similar to other online fundraising sites) where we host National nonprofit fundraising campaigns for anyone in Law Enforcement, their families, coworkers, departments, or the community as related to law enforcement. Basically, if it can benefit Law Enforcement, we can host it. Besides publishing, we post on FB, Tweet, and Instagram as well as email and anything else we can think of to help. We have 40K+ followers. We are family. We are motivated to help our Community. This is our great service.
In addition to local organizations or crisis formed bank accounts, OfficerDown.US provides a simple and national non-profit way to donate from anywhere, at anytime, without having to be seen or leave your job or home, in just seconds. Our donations support the entire community and we do not intend to interfere with local, in place organizations, only to enhance their ability to reach more people and at times, be more accessible. We are here to help.
We aim to support Law Enforcement in all capacities. Although we are here for tragedies, on duty or off duty, we support families, coworkers, departments, K-9, equestrian, and the community as related to by Law Enforcement. We'd like to host more positive, feel-good, type of campaigns. If it will help the Law Enforcement Community, we can help you help others.
OfficerDown.US is a registered national nonprofit with a passion and a mission to provide a place where people can reach out to help those who have spent their lives helping others. “To protect and serve” isn’t just a job, and those who dedicate their lives to live by the code are our family. It’s up to us to come together as a “crowd” to support the officers, the families and the departments who sacrifice so much to help others and preserve our community every day, every night.
All donations made through OfficerDown.US receive an instant receipt with our IRS tax ID making the donation a write-off.
Our site retains a minimal 5% for non-LODD or off duty fundraisers which is very necessary and hasn't nearly covered our costs yet. The credit card company charges 3.3%, which is the same amongst any online fundraising site. We never see this fee.
