Adopt-a-Bill Program helps us to focus on larger obligations.

As members of NOBLE you all unselfishly give of your time and experience, but another way you can practice generosity and support for NOBLE is to Adopt-a-Bill.  NOBLE is the only minority law enforcement organization with its own building; and this achievement is one that we are all proud of.  Along with ownership come recurring expenses; mortgage, insurance, utilities and communication services and one-time expenses that are necessary for the success of our mission.   You could help by participating in our Adopt-a-NOBLE Bill program where you could contribute towards the power bill or supplies. You could pay all or a portion of a larger bill or tackle a smaller one.      


You will receive a personal note of appreciation from the executive director and your receipt will assure that your contribution will go specifically to the bill that you indicate.  Your generosity will also be acknowledged in the NOBLE Executive Update and at our national conference as an example of demonstrated member responsibility.          


Remember to check with your tax consultant as your donation may be tax deductible.
