CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE FOUNDATION

OUR MISSION. To create a safer Corpus Christi by strengthening the bond between the CCPD and the citizens it serves. With community support, we can help foster a better equipped, better trained police force and a better informed and more engaged public.

The Corpus Christi Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed by former business leaders to support  the Corpus Christi Police Department. Donations made by individuals, corporations and foundations fund special programs, officer training, equipment, and new technology, none of which would be considered under our City budget. 

 

Our History

 

In the United States, police foundations trace their history back to July 22, 1970, when
the Ford Foundation president McGeorge Bundy announced the formation of a

Police Development Fund to improve and modernize American policing.

 

Generally, now known as a police foundation, the organizations have spread across
the nation rapidly with prominent police foundations representing major police departments across the United States.

Police foundations serve local police departments by fundraising through special events, granting tax-exempt gifts

and individual donations to improve the effectiveness of police activities. To serve and protect to the best of their abilities, police departments need to keep pace with advanced technology, new equipment, and professional development. Police foundations help in this process by serving as a flexible arm of support.

The Corpus Christi Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was formed in 2010 by former business leaders to support the Corpus Christi Police Department. Donations made by individuals, corporations and foundations fund special programs, officer training, equipment, and new technology, none of which would be considered under our City budget.

 

Welcome to the website of the Corpus Christi Police Foundation. The Corpus Christi Police Department is very fortunate to benefit from a philanthropic Foundation which provides an invaluable service to the safety of our community and the men and women of our department.

 

The Board of Directors of the Police Foundation is comprised of a group of very dedicated community members who work diligently towards providing grant funding for our police training, education and equipment programs.

 

It is because of the generous contributions of individuals, businesses, philanthropic organizations and the extraordinary efforts of the Board of Directors that the Corpus Christi Police Foundation is able to provide the necessary financial support required to maintain quality police programs and equipment offered by the Corpus Christi Police Department.

I genuinely appreciate the generosity of our community and encourage you to continue to support the Corpus Christi Police Foundation in its commitment to the Corpus Christi Police Department. It is only through our combined efforts that we can continue to provide high- quality training and education and equipment programs for our officers during extremely challenging times.

 

With sincere gratitude and appreciation,

Mike Markle

Chief of Police
