The foundation holds a number of fundraising events throughout the year to support a wide variety of programs that enhance the community in which we do business. The annual Police Pace is a highlight on the foundation’s calendar each September. This 5k race and 1-mile fun walk & run takes place at Centennial Park and is the largest fundraiser of the year for the foundation. In addition to attracting much-needed funds, these events raise awareness of the importance of the department to the safety of Howard County.
The private sector has a stake in the community where businesses are located and employees live. That’s why the foundation was formed by a concerned group of Howard County business leaders. Today, the board of directors is comprised of professionals from many different industries that represent the diversity of Howard County commerce.
This is your opportunity to give to the community in which you have enjoyed your success. By becoming a foundation board member, you will have an impact on Howard County’s future, helping to maintaining the county’s excellent quality of life and helping your fellow citizens. You’ll also experience a stronger relationship and a higher profile with the people who protect you and your business.
The Howard County Police Foundation works with the Howard County Police Department and the community to develop innovative programs and publicize and fund projects not possible under the county budget. It is our vision to improve the county’s quality of life by helping the Department provide excellent community service and public safety.
