We are working with NEP Services to operate a direct mail fundraiser. If you receive mail from us and have questions, please feel free to contact us.
Lodge 15 does NOT use telemarketing as a means of fundraising for our organization. Some other local lodges in the state still use telemarketing for their fundraising efforts but be mindful of telephone solicitation scams that use the Fraternal Order of Police name. Legitimate lodges will be happy to provide you any information you ask for to determine the legitimacy of their fundraising campaign. If you believe you have received an illegitimate request, please contact the Illinois Attorney General's Office of Consumer Fraud in Chicago at 800-386-5438.
Our Lodge may only accept donations from within the Village of Romeoville to maintain compliance with Article 19, Section 8 of the National Constitution.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
Do NOT use this method to pay membership dues, event registration, or anything other than to donate.
