The Azusa Police Foundation was established to help enhance the public safety efforts of the brave men and women of the Azusa Police Department who put their lives on the line every day to help make our community a safer place to live, work, and play.
The City of Azusa was officially incorporated in 1898, and at over 118 years old, it is only getting better with age!! We all value safety and want our community to thrive! That said, an important part of having the city continue to grow and prosper is ensuring the police department has the best training, equipment, and community partnerships possible.
That is where we need your help. Honestly, policing is expensive, and although the city ensures standard police equipment and training are funded, it takes a more robust effort to combat crime, address quality of life issues, and build bridges with the community.
Donations to the foundation go directly towards supporting our local heroes, and since we're an independent 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, your donations are tax deductible!
"WITH YOUR SUPPORT AND GENEROSITY, THE AZUSA POLICE FOUNDATION WILL PROVIDE GRANT FUNDING FOR SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT, TRAINING, AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH EFFORTS TO HELP ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT."
Some of the areas the foundation is hoping to fund include:
Grant requests submitted by the Azusa Police Department are approved or denied under the discretion of the Board of Directors. The Foundation will not consider funding requests that are appropriately a City responsibility, such as employee salaries, weapons, or ammunition.
Priority is given to requests for equipment, technology, innovative police projects or programs, community outreach, or special training.
