2024 Police Unity Tour Chapter 4

May 10

Each member (rider and support) is required to raise $2,000.00 by April 1st in order to participate in the Tour. Members must raise $1,000.00 by January 31st in order to remain on the active roster. Upon completion of the online application process, an online fundraising page is automatically generated for each participant. We strongly encourage you to use this page in your fundraising efforts. Chapter 4 set up a standard template for this page, but it can be personalized with your own message and pictures. You can send a link of your personal page to potential donors or they can make online donations by going to the Chapter 4 website, click on the Donation button on the the homepage, and search for your name. 

 

If you elect to fundraise as a team, you must have one person (designated as a team captain), set up your team on their personal fundraising page by clicking on Create A Team. Once that is done, you must communicate this team name with “We Ride For Those Who Died” “We Ride For Those Who Died” your fellow teammates and have them click on Join A Team on their personal fundraising page. This will ensure all team members are registered to fundraise together in our system. Why is this important? When you register as a team and donations come in specifically for the team, the totals are listed under the team’s name, and not under the individual. If you do not list yourself as part of a team, and all money being sent in is to be split among team members, you will show zero in your fundraising totals. Team members who elect to be part of a team and not fundraise individually agree that the team must reach the total donation needed for each to participate. For example, if there are 3 members on a team, the total funds needed for the team is $5,400 ($1,800 x 3). Team members will have to hold each member accountable for their contributions and work any issues out themselves. The Chapter IV staff will NOT create teams or add team members, nor will we split funds among people who are not designated in established teams. This is your responsibility!

This online fundraising page will keep track of ALL of your donations to include those that are made online, and those that are mailed into the P.O. Box. You will be able to see the online donations as soon as they are made; but donations mailed in will not show up until they are manually entered into the system (this can take 1-2 weeks). The Police Unity Tour is a not-for-profit organization under section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and while fundraising for participation in the Tour, members must comply with all federal, state and local laws governing such fundraising. Donations are tax deductible and the tax identification number is: 80-0642457. 

Members are encouraged to ask sponsors to submit donations online directly through your personal fundraising page or through the Police Unity Tour – Chapter 4 website (this will connect with our fundraising system). Be sure they specify the member’s name in the search box or quick link so your fundraising account can be properly credited. Donations can also be mailed to our Post Office Box. Please do not send cash in the mail. A completed sponsor form must be submitted with each mailed donation to accurately credit you and your sponsors. Please include your name and department affiliation. Without identifying information, it will be impossible to provide members with an accurate record of contributions. A sponsor form has been created and can be downloaded directly from our website under members only. Sponsors who donate $1,000 or more will receive a commemorative plaque after the ride, and will have their name displayed on our website. Clearly print the sponsor’s name on the form as they would like it on the plaque and web site.
