Fund raises $266,600 for town center victims
Anonymous donor gives $250,000 for three victims
The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation has received $266,600 since setting up the Clackamas Town Center victims fund on Dec. 12. 2012.
The CCPOBF, a nonprofit, established the fund specifically for the three families physically affected by the actions of the suspect in the case, including the family of Steven Mathew Forsyth of West Linn.
The donations have been as small as four $1 bills and as much as $250,000. A total of 146 individual donations have been received.
The donor of the $250,000 was specific as to how those funds would be distributed and wished the foundation to not announce who the donor is. Those funds, per their request, have been distributed to each of the recipients by the foundation. Each of the affected families received $80,000 and the Clackamas County Sheriffs Office received $10,000 to be put toward continued cooperative training with the retail community.
The remaining funds will stay put until each of the families can be contacted and their needs assessed. That will happen within the next few weeks.
The foundation is continuing to receive donations for the three families and you are welcome to donate as well.
Donations can be made by mailing a check to: CCPOBF, P.O. Box 426, Oregon City, OR 97045. Make the check out to CCPOBF and put CTC Victim Fund in the memo line.
Donations can also be made in person at any branch of Clackamas Federal Credit Union. Locations can be found at clackamasfcu.org/about-us/locations.html.
When making a donation at the bank, let the teller know the donation is for the CTC Victim Fund, which is under the Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation.
The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation does not have any administration fees that are deducted from donations; 100 percent of donations go to the cause you donate to.Add a comment
