​The Blue Bow Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that provides ongoing emotional and financial support to police officers and their families. We want to let officers and their families know that help is always there if and when they need it.

Once again, The Blue Bow Foundation, Inc., delivered on its mission of providing ongoing emotional and financial support to police officers and their families. Last year was yet another amazing one, with events like our “Skeet N’ Heat” Sporting Clays Tournament, Crawfish Boil & Cornhole Tournament, and annual Blue Plate Dinner all growing in attendance! We also launched our annual and lifetime memberships and watched bows go up all over the Greater Houston Area and beyond! We were deeply touched by our blessed interaction with the Roman and Davis families, and we aim to continue our mission of supporting them. Our supporters stepped up to help officers in need, and our amazing bond with the National Charity League’s Cypress Gems proved invaluable! And who could forget legendary news anchor and Houston icon Dave Ward’s talk at our 4th Annual Blue Plate Dinner?

The Blue Bow Foundation, Inc., is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Houston, Texas. Our mission is to provide holistic support to law enforcement officers and their families that will help them grow, thrive and survive in a constantly changing world. In order to provide the ongoing, supportive services we offer to law enforcement officers and their families, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! Giving to The Blue Bow Foundation ensures that the men and women that keep us safe get the support they need to stay focused, stay strong, and be at their best to protect us. Donations are tax deductible and will help lend emotional and financial counseling services to officers and their families, offer financial assistance for officers experiencing hardship, assist officers with continuing their education to improve their expertise and enhance their careers, and provide officers with the critical equipment they need to perform their duties and come home safely each night.

We can see the results of our help by the many post on social media, the ever so kind phone calls, emails, cards in the mail, etc. that we constantly get from those who have benefited by The Blue Bow Foundation. We also continually see an increase in followers because of word of mouth by those who we have been fortunate enough to assist.
