Case for Support
The New York City Police Foundation, Inc. is the only organization authorized to raise funds on behalf of the NYPD. The Foundation has a direct, measurable impact on the safety of our city through the following priority NYPD Programs:
The New York City Police Foundation was established in 1971, as an independent, non-profit organization to promote excellence in the NYPD and improve public safety in New York City. The Foundation invests in innovative programs designed to help the NYPD keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, strategies, and training.
Because personnel and operating costs absorb 90% of the NYPD budget, the Department depends on the New York City Police Foundation for resources to support innovative programs to reduce crime and defend our city from terrorism.
