Our Mission

The Charlottesville Police Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization of local citizens who help our police get the tools and training they need to do their best work.

A Letter from Our Executive Director

Mindy Goodall

The Charlottesville Police Department has been transformed from a reactive force focused on arresting lawbreakers to one that is creatively connecting with the community to solve specific problems. However, as in most cities, a large portion of the Charlottesville Police Department budget goes to pay for salaries and vehicles. And with high housing costs in the area, very few officers can afford to live in the city they serve. Founded in 2004 by a group of local citizens, the Foundation helps the department address these and other issues by providing advanced training, new technologies and equipment, housing assistance, structured community outreach and other support. I hope you will consider partnering with us to help the Charlottesville Police Department achieve its strategic mission to serve, protect, and improve the quality of life for those who reside, work, and visit in our community.

The CPF was granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in July of 2004.

Sincerely,

Mindy Goodall

I want to thank you and the other individuals who organized [the Awards Dinner]. Often, the men and women who serve this community fail to receive the recognition and praise they so well deserve. They are local heroes and should be reminded that their service to this community is appreciated by the individuals they protect and serve.
