Fundraising / Solicitation
Please be advised that we do not directly solicit donations to our organization. However, we utilize the services of several professional fund-raising companies to do that for us, and they may use the name "New York State Association of PBAs" or "Police Association of New York" in their solicitations.
Despite the ardent efforts of law enforcement, there are numerous individuals who solicit illegally, using the names of legitimate organizations in an attempt to scam the public. The personnel who are employed by the legitimate companies we contract with must follow a strict script, which should not make you feel uncomfortable in any way.
If you believe you are contacted by someone who is not legitimate, do not donate on the telephone, but ask for the solicitation in writing.
