Mission Statement

To enhance the quality of life in Spokane by engaging community organizations and citizens as partners in support of our police officers and their work.

Public Safety is critical to anyone visiting, living in, or working in the City of Spokane. The Spokane Police Foundation is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization formed to support the work of the Spokane Police Department and ensure our city is the safest community in the region.

The Police Foundation serves as a vehicle for tax-exempt gifts and grants from individuals, businesses, and organizations.  The Foundation works closely with the Police Chief and the department to support programs in the areas of:

  • Youth and community programming, training, and development to strengthen the partnership between the police and the community.
  • Equipment to improve the safety and effectiveness of police activities.
  • Training for police department personnel.
