Grand Rapids Police Foundation
The Grand Rapids Police Foundation is an organization that provides financial support for GRPD outreach, training, equipment, and recognition programs. Supporting this program is a real way to help people in this community and make living here even better for everyone. Typically these efforts are lightly funded at best. The Foundation seeks to bridge that gap by helping our law enforcement where we can. The Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organization that provides critical resources and vital support for the Grand Rapids Police Department. From essential equipment to innovative programs that would otherwise be unfunded, the Foundation directly supports programs that enhance the community's quality of life. A small sample of the programs supported by the Foundation include the On Base Youth Baseball Program, the GRPD Explorers Program, the GRPD Youth Police Academy, the Police Memorial, an Annual Board of Awards Banquet, and numerous community outreach initiatives. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting our law enforcement in order to make Grand Rapids the best place to live, work, and play!
