The End of Watch Fund (EOW) a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to assisting the families of fallen law enforcement officers and law enforcement employees experiencing tragedy. The End of Watch Fund also serves through specific outreach programs, and strives to build a positive relationship between law enforcement and the community.
The governing board of the End of Watch Fund consists of sworn and non-sworn law enforcement members, as well as community members with a strong tie to law enforcement.
One of our most prevalent programs is our “Snack Bag Project.” Between 2014 and 2019, the End of Watch Fund and its volunteers have packaged and delivered over 35,000 snack bags and bottled waters to support officers attending the funerals of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. These snack bags sustain the attending officers between the funeral and often lengthy procession, and let them know that we stand beside them during such a tragic time.
We have also conducted numerous community donation drives to assist those affected by Northern California wildfires. We work directly with organizations in the affected areas to ensure we respond with items that are most needed. In addition to supporting affected community members, we have been able to directly assist affected law enforcement families. In 2018 we initiated contact with law enforcement families who lost their home in the Redding Carr Fire, and delivered desperately needed essentials. Later in 2018, we raised over $30,000 to assist law enforcement families who lost their home in the Butte County Camp Fire.
In December of 2018 the End of Watch Fund was honored to be named the Elk Grove Citizen’s Nonprofit of the Year.
