Local Businesses Step Up to Support Bozeman Police Officers
Today on the XL Morning Show, Kurt Klewin from the Bozeman Police Foundation joined us to discuss the foundation and a recent matching grant they recently received. The grant was from the Morton Meyerson Family Foundation, who offered to give $700 to the BPF every quarter as long as another business would step up and match it.
Well, we took that to the local businesses in the XL Nation and asked if they could help us raise the $2800 needed to fund that grant in 2021. In less than 30 minutes, we had four great businesses step up to match that $700. A Big XL Thank You to:
- Bridger Mountain Plumbing
- Vosen Civil Excavation
- Chase Tactical
- Executive Services
Also thank you to Jackpot Casino & JLM Construction for chipping in to help with some scholarships for siblings of Bozeman police officers.
If you are a business who would also like to help our men and women in blue, let the Bozeman Police Foundation know by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated by the BPF and the Bozeman Police Department.100% of all money raised goes directly to fostering public safety through community building,education, and outreach through the Bozeman Police Department.The Bozeman Police Foundation was established in 2013. It is a non-profit charitable organization that supports the Bozeman Police Department in public safety and crime prevention programs. It also creates opportunities for Bozeman residents to become more involved in public safety.
In addition, the Bozeman Police Foundation provides for the improvement of the Bozeman Police Department and its employees. The Foundation provides training opportunities that help enhance the relationship between the community and the Department.
The Foundation is administered by a volunteer Board of Directors who give businesses and citizens an opportunity to provide monetary support to expand the Bozeman Police Department’s role in keeping our community a great place to live, work, and play.
Thank you, again, to the above businesses, as well as all those in the XL Nation who support our Bozeman Police Department and the Bozeman Police Foundation.
