Your Donations Enhance the Safety of our Officers!
The Baxter County Sheriff’s Foundation, Inc. came to fruition when a gift of $33,000.00 was received from the Robert ‘Bob’ Griffith Trust on October 2, 2009. This initial donation allowed the Foundation to complete its organization process and establish itself as a viable charitable organization within the community.
Within a few months, a $10,000 anonymous donation followed on April 12, 2010.
Since that time, the Foundation has received numerous contributions for small and large amounts. These donations are helping the Foundation to fulfill its mission of providing additional financial support to the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office and its employees.
The Sheriff’s Office used a portion of these funds to provide bullet proof body armor for the protection of the deputies, as well as for electronic control devices (TASERS), which gives the deputies another less than lethal force option when dealing with aggressive and combative persons.
Because of the generous donations of our friends and supporters, we have been able to provide the tools and means by which to enhance the safety of our deputies. We are confident that the continued growth and success of the Sheriff’s Foundation will allow it to continue meeting its goal of providing financial support beyond the current public funding.
No gift is too small; together we can make an impact on the safety of our community!
