Mission Statement

The purpose of the DC FOP Lodge #1 Foundation is to provide assistance to fallen and/or injured officers and their families, as well as to support the community through events and scholarships.


Lodge #1 Foundation has established two separate funds focused on improving the lives and experiences of our members and the community; for example, providing immediate assistance to law enforcement officers in disaster-hit areas when needed. The funds are the Disaster Assistance Response Team fund and the Member Support Fund. Please consider donating to our foundation to support these efforts.


The Member Support Fund will be used to render assistance to members upon written request to the lodge. Examples are for injury with an inability to work; a need for food and other basic necessities during a crisis; to help with uncovered medical bills, etc. This is a special opportunity to help our brothers and sisters when they need a hand.


The Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) fund allows the Lodge to provide logistical and financial support to law enforcement members in areas that are affected by severe weather or other emergencies. DART swiftly responds to assist officers in recovery efforts and those who have suffered damage themselves as a result of the disaster.

The DC FOP Lodge 1 Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible. Tax ID# 92-2194356
