Important Note (We are the “other” guys):

FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER:  (PERMISSION BEING SOUGHT)

There has been some viable bad press regarding fraudulent Police Fund-raising organizations in Orange County.

The Orange County Register Reports:

  • The  Association for Police and Sheriffs in Fullerton spent 88 percent of its money – $1.2 million – raising money. It only spent 4 percent – a measly $60,000 – to “end domestic violence and help women and children whose lives are devastated by abuse.”
  • The Association for Firefighters and Paramedics in Santa Ana spent 92 percent of its money – $3.6 million - raising money. It only spent 2 percent – a measly $80,500 - ”to help the survivors of catastrophic fires.”

We are the other guys — the good ones!

While the IRS regulations allow up to 95% of a foundation’s proceeds be used for overhead and excessive salaries, the SAPDF has pledged to our community that the salary, overhead, and operating expenses shall not exceed 35% of the budgeted donations and income.
