Tip-A-Cop is an official Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) fundraising event.  Law enforcement officers and department personnel volunteer their time as “Celebrity Servers” to collect tips to support Special Olympics Montana.  These special tips are in addition to the normal tip you leave for your server.


All funds raised through the Tip-A-Cop event stay in Montana with 60% of the proceeds staying in the local area to help cover costs associated with competition & training.  The 40% helps cover the costs at the statewide level.  

Tip-A-Cop Locations

Throughout the summer MacKenzie River locations throughout the state partner with local Law Enforcement to organize Tip-A-Cop events in stores. Keep an eye out for the Tip-A-Cop event near you!
