BEWARE of some organizations that hold themselves out as legitimate charities but many of these organizations who market themselves with the flag, people wearing para-military clothing, pictures of homeless and starving children and advertising themselves as a 501 (c) (3) corporation. If you do not immediately recognize the organization's name as having been around for awhile, DON'T GIVE YOUR MONEY TO SCAMMERS! Check out your charity before donating by checking out charitynavigator.org or charitywatch.org.
100% OF ALL MONEY DONATED to CFPA on behalf of a charitable fundraising event goes directly to the charity. CFPA retains $0 and, in most cases, adds money from our operating budget to supplement donations received for each charity supported.
