WHO WE ARE
We are an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization raising funds for the Jupiter Police Department to support the men and women who make our community a better place to live.
Started in 2017, this is the first time any such foundation has been formed specifically for the benefit of the Jupiter Police Department.

Procuring equipment, materials and supplies for use by Jupiter Police Department, to include specialized units, Honor Guard, and Jupiter Police Explorers.
Supporting other community involvement activities that lessen the burdens of the city government.
Supporting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) that provides enhanced police visibility and community safety.
Supporting Citizens Police Academy courses that familiarize citizens with the operations of the Jupiter Police Department.
Supporting youth programs, school programs and other activities providing positive experiences for the community.
Funding public causes through community building, education and outreach; and Supporting and helping officers and their families who are in need.
