Dear Friends,
Wishing our Cleveland Police Foundation and Law Enforcement Families a Season filled with Peace and Joy, and a special prayer for the safety of all our first responders and military who risk their lives to protect ours.
The Cleveland Police Foundation has been busy this year working with the community, namely in the area of youth, community outreach and engagement activities, these activities have greatly raised positive awareness about the mission of the CPD, its members and the CPF. 
It is due to the collective effort of all that the CPF mission of strengthening the bonds between our police officers and the community is being achieved. 
Please remember the Cleveland Police Foundation as you plan your year end giving. Your generosity makes it possible for us to continue to pursue the goals of our mission, and for that we, are most grateful.
