From the Board Chairman

The Chicago Police Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization established through the interest and support of the Chicago business community. Our mission is simple, but important – to provide supplemental resources in technology, training, and equipment to the Chicago Police Department. The programs we fund are ultimately intended to enhance overall public safety and help build stronger relationships between the community and the Chicago Police.

The Chicago Police Foundation believes that the safety of all of our neighborhoods is a civic responsibility that each and every one of us shares. In addition, we believe the Foundation’s objectives and efforts will translate into clear, tangible benefits for both the Chicago Police and for all stakeholders within our city. I hope you will support the important work of the Chicago Police Foundation by making a direct charitable donation or by attending one of our fund-raising events.

With your support, the Foundation can assist the Chicago Police Department in its mission to reduce crime and enhance public trust through community and youth outreach programs that foster the development of healthy relationships with the communities they serve.
