San Bernardino Police Foundation: Who We Are

San Bernardino Police Foundation (SBPF) is a non-profit organization in the City of San Bernardino with the sole purpose of providing additional support to San Bernardino Police Department. Its mission is to improve quality of life for the community by developing programs and/or improving existing programs and relationships between Police and community.

SBPF is guided by a Board of Directors composed of community members who help raise funds for Police community services and programs which are not funded by the Police budget. The Foundation supports needs for which government funds are not readily available by providing a funding source outside the scope of the general municipal budget.

SBPF develops and implements our mission’s priorities, and goals for program activities, monitoring program performance, effectiveness of efforts, seeking grants and donations. The Board works with San Bernardino Police Department (SBPD) leadership, ensuring Foundation priorities and objectives align with those of SBPD
