The IACP operates a foundation that assists law enforcement officers and their families, especially after sustaining physical and psychological injuries due to the dangerous nature of their work. The IACP offers support to officers and their spouses and dependents throughout the world. People can help support the foundation’s efforts through their memberships, monetary contributions, or by attending IACP-sponsored events, like the foundation’s annual gala. The IACP Foundation accepts donations from the general public and members alike on a one-time or recurring basis. Stock or bond certificates are another way to give. Some donors choose to leave gifts to the IACP in their wills or by hosting fundraising events. You can learn more about the IACP and its foundation by visiting www.theiacp.org.
