Our Christmas Bear Program


Make a donation to our Christmas Bears program!

If you would like to help and make a difference for the organizations and causes we support, please take a moment and make a donation today using the button below. Your donation will give joy and much needed funds to those that need it most.
AZTroopers has been bringing Christmas joy to children receiving treatment in various medical centers across the state for over 25 years. The program, started in 1993, was later expanded to provide the stuffed teddy bears to both children and adults at their bedside. The success is attributed to the efforts and talents of volunteers giving countless hours of their time to make the Christmas Bear Program an overwhelming success.

The mission of the program is to carry out an activity that demonstrates children are the association’s most important responsibility. The tremendous joy that is brought to the hospital patients with the bears is only a part of the benefit that results from the program. It also helps AZTroopers establish a communication mechanism to have children better understand that police officers are helpers & protectors. Witnessing the faces of those receiving the teddy bears is all that one needs to know the program is making a positive difference in many lives.

The program has exceeded over 2,150 bears each year that are delivered to patients in over 32 statewide medical centers, domestic violence shelters, hospice and a head-start program on the Hopi Tribal Reservation.

We also host raffles each year to generate funds
we donate to other charities

Thank you to the AZTroopers members who put the scholarships together every year and those who contribute.  It might seem like just a check, but it is education and a future to the ones receiving it.”

2014 and 2015 scholarship recipient

“I am very thankful for the support and generosity of the Arizona State Troopers Association. Your scholarship will help further assist my education and put me on the road towards my goals and dreams..”

Our main annual raffle allows us to donate thousands of dollars each year to needing charities and help extend the effective reach of our members to other organizations. Even though the Grand Prize is huge, the ticket price is still small – twenty bucks is not bad for an opportunity to win a $25,000, $2,000, $1,500, $1,000 or a $500 cash prize!  We are excited to continue the opportunity to buy five (5) raffle tickets and get TWO (2) FREE!   You can buy this combination of tickets (5+ 2 free) as many times as you desire!

The mission for our annual community fundraiser is to utilize the great reputation of Arizona’s finest at the Department of Public Safety to enhance the well-being of our communities. Since 1993, AZTroopers has granted nearly $1 million to local non-profit organizations and police families because of your participation in the raffle!

The association presented 11 scholarships to the children of members attending Arizona colleges in 2015.  That is three more scholarships awarded over last year because of raffle participation!  Additional scholarships are a needed for our college-bound children, as each year the number of applicants increases.

Money from the raffle is able to provide financial assistance to law enforcement families in need.  It has helped our DPS fallen officer’s survivors, from funeral to travel expenses.  AZTroopers members are able to deliver comfort bears to sick children all over the state of Arizona during the Christmas holidays.  Raffle funds additionally go to Arizona’s 100 Club, Concerns of Police Survivors, Make-A-Wish and other non-profits and causes that have a positive impact on law enforcement and Arizona.

The drawing is held in December each year at the AZTroopers’ meeting.  You do not need to be present to win!
