In defense of CfC, the Texas Fraternal Order of Police says they are their professional fundraiser. The mailing I got in followup to the phone call is from the TFOP, not CfC, and contains that statement. The return address for the donation card is also to the TFOP (I checked it against their website). As much as I resent telemarketing, in this case CfC is apparently on the up-and-up. I am not affiliated with CfC or the FOP. In fact, the police in my community chose not to affiliate with the FOP, and my donation would go to the statewide organization, not any local chapter.
