OUR MISSION

To provide critical resources for innovative NYPD programs that make New York City a safer place to live, visit, and work.

History

From purchasing bulletproof vests in the 1970s to funding Counterterrorism programs in the 2010s, the Foundation has been a vital partner for the NYPD.

Programs

Because over 90% of the NYPD budget is dedicated to personnel, there are few resources left to support new programs. Your donation makes a difference.

Donate

Your support of the NYPD provides a clear, measurable impact on the safety of our city. Find out how you can help the NYPD.
