Y our Charitable Foundation has provided support to members that have faced life-changing events such as hurricanes, severe flooding, mudslides, and wildfires. The Foundation has also assisted NA members and families who have had to deal with rebuilding their lives after becoming a victim of a house fire, vehicle accident, serious injury or illness, and even death. We are committed to supporting any active member in need. However, we also need consistent support from the NAA Mem - bership; sustaining Foundation efforts throughout each year requires your involvement. It is imperative that members are engaged with the Foundation, not only through financial sup - port but also by actively promoting the Foundation within your Chapter, the NA Community, as well as seeking support from the private sector. How can you contribute financially? • There are many avenues for individuals and corporations to contribute; checks, wire transfers, and ACH transfers are accepted. Donations can be made online as a single donation, or through bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual recurring donations. • Consider becoming an annual sustaining member by joining the Angel Campaign . When you donate $250 or more each year you will receive that year’s commemorative Angel coin and a listing on the Foundation’s Website Donors’ page. • If you are receiving mandatory payouts from a managed fund, i.e. IRA, Annuity and looking to reduce your tax liability, you can have your fund manager make payments directly to the foundation from the fund, relieving you of writing that check (recurring contributions from funds are possible). • Consider making a bequest to the Foundation in your will. What better way to be remembered? How can you actively promote the foundation within your Chapter? • Encourage your Chapters and Section to consider sponsoring fundraising events in conjunction with their re-trainers, meetings and conferences. Events could include a 50/50, Pass the Hat, Silent Auctions, or a Cigar/Whiskey Bar. • Inform NA Session candidates from your and neighboring agencies about the foundation, and encourage them to support the FBINAA Charitable Foundation through the silent auctions and other events during their NA Session.

FBINA Session 281 raised $31,146 for the FBINAA Charitable Foundation; the check is presented to FBINAA President Ken Truver.

Most recently, the 281st and 280th sessions collectively raised more than $50,000 during their respective sessions.

What can you do to assist us outside of the FBI National Academy Associates membership? • Reach out to your contacts in the private sector; it could be a conference vendor, a neighbor’s employer who supports law enforcement, or even your former law-enforcement employer. Corporations and businesses (large and small) can support our cause through single donations or sponsoring a scholarship. • Encourage a company to participate in the 50K Campaign. This campaign has four levels; with each level the donor will receive a number of coins that share the FBINAA seal and their own logo. This coin was developed so that donors could show their gratitude to any First Responder they may meet. We have found that many companies value the coins for marketing purposes. Individual charitable foundation coins are also available through fbinaafoundation.org. The Charitable Foundation strives to present exciting events to engage the membership and increase the awareness of the Foundation and our mission. We annually sponsor gun giveaways, trip giveaways (Hawaii being the most popular), as well as the growing appeal of the Virtual Yellow Brick Run . The YBR keeps getting bigger every year, with chapters, sections and session mates competing against each other for the best time. These fundraising campaigns are important not only to the
