The San Jose Police Officers’ Association Charitable Foundation (SJPOA CF) was founded in 1985 and provides financial support to charitable organizations within the community. Funding is made possible through SJPOA members’ contributions, outside donations, and fundraisers. The SJPOA CF supports five main categories of programs:
