Reviews for Illinois Police Association Inc

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 1 stars  

We donated to this association for a number of years. Now everytime they call for a donation they are EXTREMELY RUDE. The first time I told them we couldn't donate at this time they said "Oh How Nice" and hung up. They second time I told them they would have to speak to my boss. They didn't and when they called back they insisted that they spoke to my boss and that there was going to be a check for them. This was incorrect. They never contacted my boss and when I told them this they said... "Oh well he must've had abnesia" and hung up. By they way his name was Paul. Once we found out how much was ACTUALLY donated we decided to not donate anymore. They still continue to call and when you tell them no, they get extemely rude. I hope they never call again because next time it's going to be my boss and he is not happy about this. It's a shame because we donated to them so many times. You'd think they'd be a little more polite.

Contacted by telephone to donate to the Illinois Police Association, said yes, but knew I would research first. When the letter arrived a statement on the back side said "a large portion of the gross proceeds raised goes to defray the cost of this appeal". Looking at the 990 from last year, it appears that 84% of the money taken in goes to the fundraisers. Sorry, I do not support these overpaid fundraisers!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

None.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reorganize...a 501c3 organization should not be expending such a large percentage of receipts to get those receipts!
