E614 CORPORATION

"Protecting Those Who Serve"

aka E614

Garden Grove, CA

Mission

E614's mission is to make better safety equipment more accessible to sworn U.S. Police Officers nationwide, and to educate our society on the importance of this equipment. Level III body armor helps protect officers from higher level threats of ammunition, something standard issued armor cannot. This equipment is vital, but not always afforded by departments or officers. E614 allows any U.S. sworn Law Enforcement officer to request a donation of a set of this equipment, which includes two AR500 steel plates and a plate carrier, at E614.org. E614 collects donations and uses 100% of every donation to purchase and ship body armor to officers on a first-come, first-served basis. All labor and overhead are donated in-kind.

Charting Impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The ultimate goal of E614 is to provide U.S. Law Enforcement with the safety equipment they need to more confidently serve their communities. This equipment can protect the officer from higher level threats of armor. The more confident an officer is in his own safety, the more thoughtfully and level-headedly he can perform his duties.

As a new, 100% nonprofit organization, our goals rely heavily on public support. Our strategy is, plain and simple, to inform as many people as we can reach about this tragic lack of funding for law enforcement.

In the first few months of launching a website to receive requests from law enforcement, we had reached officers in 40+ of the United States. The law enforcement community is a tight-knit community in which word travels quickly. We encourage the officers requesting help through our organization to spread the word about us, in order to help our organization assist officers more quickly.

Social media has been another effective medium for the goals of E614. Facebook and Instagram have been a good way to connect with the public and with our law enforcement officers, share news of successes, and encourage donors.

Co-Founder John Tompkins has years of experience as the President and CEO of his own contracting company. Co-Founder Jayne McBride has years of experience as the finanical controller of Tompkins' company. This experience allows them to make intelligent decisions for E614, and allows E614 to operate with zero overhead costs.

Our capabilities for reaching our goals also lie heavily in the amount of care and heart we have for this mission. All four of the E614 volunteers are family to law enforcement officers. We understand on a personal level, just how difficult a job and lifestyle the law enforcement profession is. It is because of this connection we feel to every police officer we see, that we are so determined to serve each and every officer who seeks assistance with acquiring this equipment.

If E614 is able to send out one more set of this protective equipment to an officer in need, we see that as making progress. Every single law enforcement officer is important. Each day, our law enforcement puts themselves between the innocent and the danger. Our officers are just people, with families to support who rely on them. If they are willing to make this sacrifice for us, they deserve to be as protected as possible while doing so. Every set of armor we send out is one more life possibly saved.

As of June 19th, 2017, E614 has sent out 411 sets of Level III armor to help protect officers from higher level threats. At this time, we have 3,692 officers on our waiting list awaiting an armor donation. This number grows daily as more officers hear about E614.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
