The Colorado Police Officer's Foundation
The Colorado FOP Police Officers' Foundation is a charitable corporation that operates under the 501 (c) (3) provisions of the federal tax code. This official designation granted by the Internal Revenue Service conveys tax-exempt status to the foundation and specifically allows contributions to be tax deductible.
The general purpose of the foundation is to generate funds to promote a greater understanding and awareness by the public on issues affecting the law enforcement profession. The primary focus of the Police Officers’ Foundation is to foster community-wide support for law enforcement by providing supplemental resources for traumatically injured officers and their families, giving needed financial assistance to survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and building meaningful and positive officer-community partnerships.
More officers die each year by their own hand than are killed by felons. For too many year's PTSD and work-related mental health issues in our profession has been law enforcement's dark secret. But our organization has been working hard to bring awareness to this issue.
All services and assistance offered by the Foundation is funded completely by individual and corporate donations. Without this genorosity we would be unable to provide these programs. The Colorado FOP Police Officers’ Foundation provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and the business community, through tax-deductible donations, to show their thanks and support of the brave men and women of law enforcement who proudly serve their communities across Colorado daily. The disbursement of these funds is strictly regulated and must be used for the foundation’s stated charitable purposes. Your tax-deductible donation is vital to our efforts. We encourage you to contribute any amount you consider appropriate.
Some of the programs that are funded by the foundation:
*Assistance for local lodges when a member is killed or badly hurt in the line of duty.
*Assistance for families when their loved one is killed or badly hurt in the line of duty.
