The Dunwoody Police Foundation announces the receipt of a donation of $11,500 from the Rotary Club of Dunwoody. The gift, comprised of funds from the Dunwoody Rotary Charitable Fund and individual donations from Rotarians, was made as a restricted gift to the Dunwoody Police Foundation through its Founders’ Campaign 2020. The Rotary club requested that funds be earmarked to help defray the cost of launching a K-9 Unit in the Dunwoody Police Department.
Rotary’s president Cathie Brumfield said, “Our members wish to salute all who have served with distinction in the police department in our city’s first decade and we wish to do our part to invest in continued excellence in policing in the Dunwoody community. Helping to launch the department’s K-9 unit is one way to demonstrate that support.”
In thanking the Rotary Club of Dunwoody for its sponsorship, Rick Holland, foundation president, said, “We are thrilled to hear about Rotary’s generous support. This donation gives the Police Foundation a running start toward its goal of raising $50,000 through its Founders’ Campaign 2020.”
Through the Founders’ Campaign there is a broad array of options for individual and corporate sponsorships. Proceeds from sponsorships will be used to support the mission and goals of the Dunwoody Police Foundation. The principal purposes of the foundation are to: provide aid to Police Department personnel in emergency situations; provide funding for specialized training and purchase of special equipment; and support community partnerships through educational materials and sponsoring of community events.
