Abbotsford Police Foundation


Since its inception in 2005 the Abbotsford Police Foundation has been helping fund community policing initiatives and specialized equipment not covered by the annual operating budget of the Abbotsford Police Department (AbbyPD).


Who we are / what we do:

The Abbotsford Police Foundation is a charitable organization that helps AbbyPD achieve their goal of making Abbotsford ‘The Safest City in BC’ in three key ways:

  • Building Positive Relationships
  • Connecting Police with Community
  • Funding Engaging Programs
Our motto ‘Together for a Safer Abbotsford’ helps demonstrate that it takes everyone working together – individuals, businesses, public and private organizations, governments and the police – to create a safe, happy, healthy community we are proud to call home.


Why it matters:

Growing communities like ours face enormous pressures on available resources at the very time they’re needed most. The AbbyPD cannot directly receive financial contributions; however the Abbotsford Police Foundation is a trusted, practical way for you to support the work of our dedicated officers and help enhance public safety in Abbotsford.


We fund only AbbyPD initiatives:

Each grant funding request we receive begins as an idea from AbbyPD member, and must be approved by Chief Constable Colin Watson before coming to the APF board for consideration.


Your generosity at work:

Every dollar you donate makes a big difference. This is especially true because the APF is an entirely volunteer-run charitable organization. That means that money you donate go directly to fund approved AbbyPD initiatives. To donate  visit:
