Acts of Mass Violence: Public Safety Response & Recovery Initiative
The IPSA kick-started this fundraiser on #GivingTuesday (11/28/2017) and we need your donation today so we can provide public safety the research, education and training they need to mitigate, respond to and help communities recover from acts of mass violence.
An effort of this magnitude is a significant undertaking and requires a substantial amount of public safety expertise and time, and there is currently no federal funding availalbe to support this initiative.
All donors can deduct their contribution per the U.S. IRS, IRC Section 170. Our Federal Tax ID # is 47-1409233.
IPSA Reaches Goal 1
Through the generous financial contributions from our members, citizens and private companies, the IPSA achieved Goal 1.
The money we raised was used to create a compendium of thought-leadership articles about acts of mass violence preparedness, response, community resiliency and mental health recovery. These articles were written by public safety professionals in 911 telecommunications, law enforcement, fire service, private sector and mental healthcare.
We encourage everyone to download, print and share this document within your departments, cities and on social media.
