      Our Foundation

      Meet us at an event!

      We regularly host and participate in community events and fundraisers where we have the chance to talk with local residents and businesses. Several of our San Diego Police Officers Association events are held in support of our Widows & Orphans Fund, Memorial Fund and Scholarship Program, and we are grateful for your support.

      Widows & Orphans Fund

      The Widows & Orphans Fund is a vital part of the San Diego Police Officers Association. We are the ONLY charity in San Diego that directly supports the sworn officers of the SDPD in times of injury or death.

      Memorial Fund

      The SDPOA Memorial Fund provides financial and logistical support to allow our members to attend and represent San Diego at memorial services for law enforcement officers killed in the line-of-duty.

      Scholarship Program

      Each year, the SDPOA awards scholarships to a number of students to help children of members achieve their goals in higher education.
