North Dakota Peace Officers’ Foundation

Purpose

The North Dakota Peace Officers’ Foundation, Inc. was formed by the North Dakota Peace Officers Association Executive Board for the purposes of promoting public welfare and law enforcement including the construction and maintenance of the North Dakota Peace Officers Memorial, which is located on the State Capital Grounds near the Judicial Wing in Bismarck. The Corporation will solicit contributions from the general public, and as available, public funds to support all activities undertaken to fulfill the Corporation’s purpose. Since the Corporation is nonprofit 501(C)3, this will allow individuals/groups/businesses to deduct their contribution when filing their federal tax returns.
