Making our communities safer places to work & live.

2021 November Gala

We are thrilled to announce our annual fundraising Gala in person event is coming soon this November! Please join us Saturday, November 6th, 2021 at the new Ameswell Hotel in Mountain View. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to our events page.

Thanksgiving 2020…

Our 24th annual Thanksgiving Cops & Gobblers food drive adapted to the challenges of 2020. Instead of assembling and hand delivering 400 food baskets, Cops & Gobblers safely worked together with our local partners to distribute $50 Safeway grocery gift cards directly to 600 local families in need. This was made possible by generous donations, collaboration and partnerships. If you’d like to help contribute to the gift cards, please consider making a donation.

We are disheartened, saddened, and deeply disturbed at what we observed in Minneapolis…

The violence and behavior we have all witnessed is inexcusable and goes against the tremendous work and service of building trust between law enforcement and our diverse communities. The tragic death of George Floyd as well as the aftermath of events have sparked significant and challenging debate for reform.

The Foundation’s mission remains to support public safety to help make our communities better and safer. We recognize that our local public safety has championed 21st Century Policing in order to provide professional and compassionate service to our diverse community.

Moving forward as we listen and understand the needs of everyone in our community, we are better able to follow our mission and make our communities better.

Through continued collaboration, partnerships, and education, with community-based organizations and public safety organizations, we focus to find ways to bridge the gap and be a part of the solution.

COVID-19 response…

The past year we have seen our first responders stretched and community members experiencing significant challenges. MVPSF immediately responded to some of these challenges and in the early months of 2020, we partnered with community organizations to provide Cops & Gobblers Relief and created the First Responder’s Benevolent Fund.
