Donations to the Fund
The Gold Star Club will conduct at least one planned fundraiser effort each year to provide a foundation of funds in our reward account.
Additionally, in the event of an especially noteworthy crime and/or at the request of the Sheriff of Manatee County, an appeal will be made to the public to make donations directly to the reward fund.
News media releases will be prepared to inform the community of our actions and progress relating to crimes in which a reward has been posted. Money collected from the public by the Gold Star Club of Manatee County will be deposited into an account that will be used exclusively for rewards for crimes committed in Manatee County. We have no paid employees.
The Gold Star Club is an IRS qualified 501 c-3 charitable organization and has registered with the State of Florida as a charitable organization.
