It’s very simple to donate to the Foundation if you shop online at through the AmazonSmile program. You may already be familiar with this program and you may already be donating to other charities through your AmazonSmile purchases. If you are that’s great, except that we are asking you to begin donating to the Colorado Police Officers Foundation this holiday season so that you can show your support for the men and women of law enforcement and their families. If you are not currently using AmazonSmile then we are asking you to begin during this holiday season and support the men and women of law enforcement and their families.

The donations from your online shopping through and AmazonSmile will go to fund programs that will help officers suffering with PTSD, programs that help to protect children, assist the families of fallen officers, as well as programs that assist officers who are disabled or in need of emotional counseling and therapy. The Colorado Police Officers Foundation was created by the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police to have a way to assist law enforcement through a 501(C) 3 charitable organization. We need your help to continue to do the work that no one else is doing for law enforcement officers.  The information below will explain how you can begin donating to the Colorado Police Officers Foundation by shopping at and the AmazonSmile program.   You can access AmazonSmile by going directly through our website at:  Thank you for your support this holiday season and always.
