Supporting the Foundation

The generous tax-deductible contributions made by civic-minded individuals are responsible for helping support many of the good works our organization has already achieved to benefit of the Rochester Police Department and our communities. Your contribution is greatly appreciated, and helps support programs such as those listed below.

Books & Bears
Big things often start in small ways. You support helps provide a stuffed teddy bear or a quiet moment of reading to our youngest residents, which are offered to small children who experience or witness domestic violence or other traumatic events.

Shop With a Cop
This youth outreach program helps children ages 6-14 make their holiday wishes come true. Students selected by the City Recreation Department join volunteers from the police department on a trip to Eastview Mall and are given gift cards to help with their holiday shopping.

Support Equipment & Services

The Rochester Police Foundation helps fund extra-budgetary items for our police department, including assisting with the purchase and maintenance of dogs, horses, and ballistic safety shields.

In addition to these programs, the Rochester Police Foundation has assisted families of fallen officers, worked with the Police Activities League on youth outreach programs, helped fund the operation of a baseball tournament with police officers for our City's youth, recognized retired and fallen officers at the Walk of Honor, helped fund gun buybacks, which removed over 200 illegal weapons from the street, and offered Family Night at Frontier Field for officers & their families.
