Nelson Police Foundation Fund

Donations to this fund generate earnings to support programs and projects of the Nelson Police Foundation.

In 2013, the Nelson Police Board approved the formation of the Nelson Police Foundation the goal of which is to raise funds that will be used for important community and policing initiatives supporting a healthy and productive relationship between the Nelson Police Department and the community it serves. Specialized training and equipment, community education, crime prevention and youth projects that are not typically funded with the annual police budget are financed through the fundraising efforts of the Foundation.

The Fund also generates income for the Nelson Police Foundation Bursary. This bursary is awarded annually to an LVR student with financial need that has an interest in criminal justice or law enforcement.

Some of the other Projects & Programs, the Foundation currently supports:

  • Emergency Services Camp – coaching and mentoring our youth
  • Mental Health and Wellness programs for First Responders
  • Restoration of Heritage Police Car with high school students

"I wanted to do something local, such as helping seniors in our hospital here, and the fund I chose was a good fit with what I wanted to do. The donation is also a memorial to my wife; it fulfilled her wishes too."
