Our mission is to actively support Minnesota and Wisconsin Military members, their spouses and children through the availability of financial scholarship assistance. The Soldier or immediate family member must be pursuing an educational goal toward Law Enforcement. The memorial fund promotes the values of: Freedom, Opportunity, Responsibility, Compassion, and Morality.
In order to accomplish this mission, the fund will provide assistance to selected and approved applicants who qualify. With available funds, scholarships will be awarded twice per calendar year, March and September. One hundred percent of your charitable donation is awarded in the form of financial scholarships.
