The PAFOP Foundation is a Non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  It has been in existence since June 10, 2011.  It has received tax-exempt status as a public charity from the Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and therefore contributions as deductible for federal income tax purposes.  The Foundation has a Board of Directors, some of whom are appointed by Pennsylvania State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police and some of whom are members of the general public.  None of the Directors receive compensation for services rendered to the Foundation.

The Foundation’s primary purpose is to:

(1)    Assist the families of local lodges when law enforcement members are killed in the line of duty.

(2)    Assist injured, disabled, sick or distressed law enforcement members.

(3)     Assist retired and elderly law enforcement members.

(4)    Create and/or maintain a State Memorial for officers killed in the line of duty.       

          To fulfill its purpose and to appeal for financial support from the general public, the Foundation has contracted with a professional fund raiser.  Prior to doing so, the Foundation properly registered with      Department of State of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a charitable organization authorized to raise funds from the public while contracting with the professional fundraiser as required by the Pennsylvania Solicitation of Funds for Charitable Purposes Act.
