Why Razorless for a Reason?

What began with one officer raising money for one CAC has now become a statewide fundraising campaign, earning $285,000 last year alone! The passion and dedication of CAC staff and law enforcement partners has made this happen, raising funds for kids and families that would otherwise be unavailable.

Maybe the best thing about Beards for Bucks dollars is that unlike other funding sources, there are no restrictions for the donations made through this campaign.  These funds can and have been used to improve the CAC and the MDT’s ability to provide a safe, trauma informed, and supportive environment for the children and families who come through our doors.  This may mean anything from purchasing a new Keurig for the family waiting area to contributing to the development of behavioral health services at a center.

Join Law Enforcement Agencies as they support local Child Advocacy Centers (CAC) around New Hampshire. Beards for Bucks is a fun and exciting fundraiser where law enforcement officers are allowed to grow facial hair for the month of October to support their local CAC. Officers depend on the generosity of the community to make a donation to support their “Razorless for a Reason” cause. A fun and easy way to support law enforcement and your very own local CAC!

Why it matters to a Child Advocacy Center?

Each law enforcement agency and individual officer who participate make a tremendous difference for their own community CAC.  The money raised through their efforts goes directly to the local CAC to continue the work of the Multidisciplinary team and collective efort to help the most vulnerable of victims of abuse, children.
