The Winston-Salem Police Foundation provides funding for training and skill development to strengthen community collaboration and expand partnerships between the community and its police officers. We support officer training enhancement and supplemental equipment to improve the effectiveness of officers. We enable the police department to qualify and apply for grant funding available exclusively for 501(c)(3) organizations. We allow for tax-deductible gifts from individuals, businesses and philanthropic organizations. We replicate a public-private partnership model that has proven to be highly effective in the prevention and reduction of crime in other major cities. We are the only organization authorized to raise funds on behalf of the Winston-Salem Police Department.
