Our nation is experiencing a significant surge in crime and violence which are having real impacts on our communities. Businesses in high-crime areas are shutting their doors and people do not feel safe in their communities. We need our police officers now more than ever. But ours is a difficult and dangerous profession and it is essential that we support them and that they feel supported while serving their communities. One way to do this is to contribute to and support the work of the National Fraternal Order of Police through its Corporate Advantage Alliance Program.
With your corporation’s contribution and support, the National FOP, through its charitable foundation, can provide funding for 3 initiatives that directly benefit the men and women of law enforcement and their families:
- National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service,
- Disaster Area Response Team (DART) deployments and Disaster Relief, and
- Officer Wellness Program and Summit.
The National Peace Officers Memorial Service
Be part of something powerful—the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service held annually on May 15th. This event is held on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, and it is the largest annual gathering of law enforcement officers and survivor families in the United States, with more than 30,000 participants. This national event is unique because it honors all the fallen heroes from the previous year and all survivor families actively participate as their sacrifice is recognized. The event is the cornerstone of National Police Week, with all other events constructed around the Memorial Service.
Disaster Area Response Teams
The National FOP established the Disaster Area Response Teams (DART) to help law enforcement officers and their families following a natural or man-made disaster. While the officers continue to work in the event’s aftermath, three teams of dedicated volunteers are staged across the country and ready to deploy in a matter of hours to support the responding officers and their families. Since the inception of the DART initiative in 2020, DART teams have responded to six natural disasters: 4 hurricanes, 1 flood and 1 wildfire. DART volunteers have served over 60,000 meals, remediated and stabilized 400 homes and provided water and supplies to the six disasters.
Officer Wellness Program
The National FOP is deeply committed to supporting officer well-being by taking a positive and proactive approach on care and wellness. To meet this growing need, we have established the National FOP Officers’ Wellness Program. Our unique program is developing the first nationally standardized curriculum for law enforcement peer support. The “Power in Peers” curriculum provides a modern model of law enforcement peer support with opportunities for students to become Certified Peer Mentors. Our program also identifies and vets wellness services which have the kind of support and services needed by law enforcement officers.
Corporate Advantage Alliance Program
In Fall 2022, the National FOP started the National Fraternal Order of Police Corporate Alliance Program to help financially support its key programs and services which honor the sacrifices of the men and women of the National FOP. The National FOP Corporate Alliance Program encourages and recognizes the generous contributions made by our corporate partners through seven levels of donation to the NFOP Foundation:

Corporate Advantage Partners
In law enforcement, our officers rely on their partners during every shift. They rely on the National FOP to protect and defend their rights as public employees, and they rely on the support of their families and friends. The National FOP acknowledges the following partners who have stepped up to help serve those who serve our communities.
