You read or hear about it daily in the news. County funds are limited and have to be spread across many county-wide needs. These limited public funds only go so far within the Sheriff's Office and it makes it very challenging to excel in our mission of service to the public.
Your tax-deductible donations are crucial in helping us provide the highest level of service to our community. Donated funds are commonly used for the purchase of equipment, college scholarships to Sheriff’s Office employees, renovation and remodeling of facilities.
Of course, you may specify how your donation is to be used. Ideas include bullet proof vests, Tasers, new, modern weapons; even a K-9 narcotics dog. As long as the designation is not in conflict with the Foundation’s charter and objectives, you may specify how the funds are to be used.
Alternatively, donations may be made for the general use and benefit of the Sheriff’s Office as determined by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
If you would like to discuss ideas before you donate, arrange a visit with Sheriff John Montgomery at his office or with any member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Click on the Contact Us tab to set up an appointment, or you can view our foundation brochure.
We hope you will consider helping us make Baxter County a safer place to live and raise a family by making a tax-deductible donation today.
