The Board of Directors and Executive Committee introduced the PFIA Charitable Fund on January 1, 2013. Our Certificate of Incorporation was approved by the State of Indiana on September 26, 2012.
PFIA is accepting charitable contributions to our Charitable Fund, which are tax deductible for the person or company donating.
In April of every year, the Board (consisting of three Executive Officers and two other current Board Members) will distribute PFIA’s contributions and donations from our members to these predetermined charities from the prior year.
We will lean heavily towards children and military families. The four funds that we will contribute to will be, Make a Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Everyone gives money to charities of their choice but we think giving our members a place to give, that they know 100% of funds are distributed to charities close to their heart will be a very benevolent endeavor.
We think that will be great extension of our fraternal mission and hope it is received well and becomes the place to go to for members to help others.
We have a page in our magazine, "The Protector" for publishing contributors and any information pertaining to the fund.
If you would like to donate, please make check payable to PFIA Charitable Fund and put in the memo "charitable contribution", or write a note and put it in the envelope and mail to PFIA, attention John E. Murphy.
