Donate to the PPA Relief Fund and Scholarship

The Denver Police Protective Association Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity established in 2003 to provide first responders immediate funds after suffering or experiencing an unexpected loss or expense. We also provide scholarship opportunities to active PPA members and their families. While we always hope there are no critical incidents resulting in injury to those who serve our community by providing public safety, the reality is the service demands recognition of the many dangers inherent to members of this profession.  All are welcome to help out the first responders and their families who have been injured, suffering from an unexpected catastrophic event, or have fallen in the line of duty.  You can donate here via PayPal or mail a check to 2105 Decatur Street, Denver, CO  80211. We thank you and every donation helps, no matter how small or how large!
