Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. We hope to maintain a sufficient reserve so that we can immediately support police officers who are sick or injured outside of the line of duty.

2. We are aiming to add 2 additional fully endowed scholarships for criminal justice students.

3. We want to gain notoriety in the law enforcement community so that officers in need can reach out to us.

1. We are continuing to grow our fundraising events.

2. We added 3 new law enforcement board members.

We are very capable of growing our fundraising events. We currently double or triple the results of similar charity events. Our premier event is a 1/2 marathon race, which has doubled in size each year and will continue to grow. Our charity is run with 100% volunteers, and we have very little overhead.

Since our charity started, we have donated more than $125,000 directly to law enforcement, and have fully endowed 1 scholarship with donations of $29,500. We hope to grow enough to provide $100,000 in support each year to the law enforcement community in scholarships and direct help to officers in need.
