C.O.P.S. Blue Ribbon Club

Each member receives the annual official Blue Ribbon Club Challenge coin, and C.O.P.S. vinyl car decal.  Individuals can join for a minimum donation of $25.  Departments that get 10 or more individuals to join at a minimum donation of $25 each ($250 total) will be added to the Partners in Law Enforcement (PLE) membership and added to the PLE banner during National Police Week.


Proceeds from the Blue Ribbon Club go to support C.O.P.S.' Hands-On Programs and retreats.

CFC United Way State Employee Campaigns


C.O.P.S. is a participating member of Human Care Charities of America and a proud participant of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).  C.O.P.S. is #11183 in the CFC.  C.O.P.S. is included in many other United Way appeals, corporate campaigns and State Employee Charitable Campaigns.


Individuals, corporations, and labor and fraternal police organizations can make donations to C.O.P.S.  Many sponsor special events to raise funds.  Donations can also be made through payroll deductions to the CFC (#11183), State Employee Charitable Campaigns (SECC), or your local United Way.


The CFC number (#11183) is nationwide for all local CFC campaigns.  C.O.P.S. must be accepted, however, in each local United Way campaign, so a local "cheerleader" is needed to get the ball rolling.  Check with your local United Way campaign office to get their regulations that would allow employee donations to be designated for C.O.P.S.  The C.O.P.S. National Office will provide whatever information they need.


C.O.P.S. has been approved for participation in numerous state employee campaigns through its affiliation with Independent Charities of America.  Read the state campaign brochure carefully to find C.O.P.S.  If C.O.P.S. is not listed, check with your local campaign headquarters to see if you can designate your donations to C.O.P.S.  Contact the C.O.P.S. National Office for any additional assistance.



Host or Sponsor a Special Event


From golf tournaments to 10K walks and runs to motorcycle rodeos to poker tournaments to a cross-country bike trek, fishing tournaments, groups of people all across the country raise funds to help C.O.P.S.


Businesses can sponsor various National Police Week activities for survivors and any of our other programs for survivors.



Make a Matching Gift


Many companies have matching gifts programs through which they can double or sometimes even triple the charitable donations made by their employees.  Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your donation to C.O.P.S.  Check with your company's Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching and to find out about their contribution criteria.  If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form or on-line form.  C.O.P.S. will verify receipt of your gift.  If your company doesn’t have a program in place, ask them to start one!



Recycle Cell Phones


The Charitable Recycling Team wants to assist you and the environment by making it easy to dispose of used cell phones. Because cell phones and their batteries contain many hazardous materials that can harm the environment if not disposed of properly, it's important to know how and where to recycle e-waste in an environmentally-responsible way.


The Charitable Recycling Program encourages the donation of used cell phones and will provide a monetary contribution to charity for each cell phone donated, regardless of age or condition.
