We are asking for those who want to support security patrols to make an additional donation above the base dues of $120. Contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations, such as the CPCA, generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes,but 100% of your additional donation will be used to fund the cost of patrols in the Chastain Park neighborhoods. We pay $40 per hour for security patrols, all of which are conducted by off-duty Atlanta Police Department officers. That means with a donation from you of $200, we could cover the cost of 5 hours of additional security patrols for 1 day. That’s less than 50 cents per day! With a robust membership and your generous support we can exceed those levels. The security patrol assignments will, in part, reflect where those who help fund the patrols live.
