The Spokane Police Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation formed by local business leaders to support the mission of the Spokane Police Department. We are proud to work closely with Spokane Police Department leadership to provide financial support to the department for some of their amazing programs that are an integral part in building stronger relationships with our community. By engaging key business and civic leaders, the Department and our community partners, the Foundation will help achieve the shared goal of providing a safe place to live, work and visit.

The Spokane Police Department actively engages the youth in our community through programs such as the Youth and Police Initiative (YPI) and the Police Activities League (PAL), including PAL Boxing. These programs take a pro-active approach to crime prevention through positive interaction with law enforcement. The Spokane Police Foundation also provides financial support for programs like the back to school Shop with a Cop events and the Christmas Giving Program. We help support the department's Volunteer Services Cadet and Explorer Programs.
Our police officers are often on the front lines when it comes to the needs of our community. By empowering them to identify an immediate problem and take action, we can assist those in our community, including families, children and crime victims, that are in crisis. That is why we have our Community Assistance Program that provides officers access to financial resources 24/7/365 for those immediate needs of community members they encounter through the course of their duties.
We also provide financial support for outreach like the annual Faith and Blue events.
The Foundation helps the Spokane Police Department keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, training techniques and strategies by providing funding for those that fall outside the regular budget. By making sure our officers have the best, we help ensure both their safety and the public's.
