Complaint: Last year, after being contacted by two Police and Firefighter Charities I donated few hundred dollars to them and was promised in return an ad in their periodicals. Both charities claim that they have nothing to do with each other yet both members that contacted me had the same physical address in the email footer: Nick G. Firefighters Awards Dinner 172 5th Ave Brooklyn NY 11217 PHONE: 718-907-5824 Michael M. Police Dispatch Inc. 172 5th Ave, Brooklyn NY 11217 PHONE: 718-732-7707 I have never received a copy of their periodicals (that are supposed to be distributed to all fire stations and police stations) with my classifieds ad printed in it . When I called them few times they always come up with excuses that the person responsible is sick or in the hospital or simply not in the office and will call me back later. I couldn’t find any of these organizations in CharityNavigator.org. They do not explain anywhere the specifics on the programs your donation will fund and how they will help local NY officers. They could not clearly specify how much of my money will go towards the officer program either. Their cause may sound legitimate, but as far as I can see they do little or nothing to contribute to the police and firefighters that donors believe they are helping.
