Crime Stoppers is a community organization that does not rely on government or funding from the police. We work hard during the year to raise funds to continue to offer the invaluable anonymous tip line. These are some ways that we raise funds:
- One-time or monthly giving. We receive donations either through the mail or online at CanadaHelps.org from people who would like to simply give towards Crime Stoppers.
- Casinos. Every 18 months, Crime Stoppers is awarded a casino by AGLC. This requires many volunteers to staff, but is a significant source of funds for the program.
- Caught by Crime Stoppers Jail Bailout. This is our annual signature fundraising event and one of our biggest fundraisers. Find out all about it by visiting www.caughtbycrimestoppers.com!
- Re-enactment Sponsorship. Crime Stoppers works with Global Television to produce and air crime re-enactments. These clips are seen hundreds of thousands of times by viewers across the region. Global allows Crime Stoppers to sell re-enactment sponsorship packages to offset the cost of producing these spots. Companies purchase these packages to both support Crime Stoppers and promote their organization.
- Magazine. We publish a magazine four times each year that is free to subscribers on our mailing list. We work with Crime Watch Publications to sell advertising space in the magazine that helps support Crime Stoppers.
- Golf Tournament 50/50s. We work with organizations that run annual golf tournaments for their employees/clients. Crime Stoppers is named the beneficiary of their 50/50 and Mulligan sales and we provide volunteers to sell these items to their participants. We bring signage, the license, and tickets – it’s easy for the tournament organizer and is a great way for Crime Stoppers to raise funds!
- Grants. Not only does Crime Stoppers offer the anonymous tip line, but we also provide other programming focused on crime prevention and education. Some examples of this include C.S.Y. (Crime Stoppers Youth) and our upcoming Habitual Impaired Driving campaign.
Crime Stoppers would not exist without the generous contributions of individuals and businesses in the community. Please consider partnering with us in one of the ways listed above or by simply making a donation today.
