Never heard of police foundations?


Never heard of police foundations? That’s the point.



Behind closed doors, police foundations and their corporate sponsors privately fund the ongoing militarization and expansion of policing — targeting Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.


Color Of Change and LittleSis have compiled the most extensive report to date of the links between police foundations and corporations, identifying over 1,200 corporate donations or executives serving as board members at 23 of the largest police foundations in the country.
