The Executive Planning Committee of the FASP has contracted the services of a group called Outreach Calling located in Reno, Nevada. to continue our fundraising efforts on behalf of the Association. We have also retained the services of MPI to solicit on our behalf.
The FASP works toward improving the fire and emergency services throughout the State of PA. It works with fire departments across the state to discuss new and better ways to fight fires, save property and lives, and to help educate the public about fire safety. The funds derived from this campaign will help support death benefits for member’s families, improvements to the fire service across the state, support scholarships for member’s higher education, and to support public fire safety education. A portion of the donations were also used for administrative expenses and to pay for the fundraising costs.
Although the FASP is recognized as a non-profit organization by the IRS, because of its particular status [501( c ) 8] , donations are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes.
Outreach Calling and MPI have a state of the art calling system that controls the calling area and the number of calls made for any given time period and all calls are digitally tracked for quality review and response to concerns and inquiries is almost immediate. Every phone call can be tracked.
