What better way to make a difference than to provide us a gift of stock! Your stock broker can assist you in making a gift of stock from a direct transfer to the Louisville Metro Police Foundation. We appreciate any gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that has been owned for more than one year. Your charitable income tax deduction may be given fair market value in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees by transferring ownership instead of selling your stock.
If you would like to learn more about how you can make a difference by transferring a gift of stock to the Louisville Metro Police Foundation, please contact us at (502) 409-9563 or email our Executive Director, Ms. Tracie Texas Shugart, at

The Police Foundation is developing a new set of spending and programming initiatives to maximize the impact of the private donations we receive on LMPD’s overall effectiveness and on the capabilities of the approximately 1,250 LMPD officers.

These new Safer Louisville initiatives will be announced this fall and will focus on four priority areas.

Crime Fighting – Projects that directly enhance LMPD’s capabilities to apprehend criminals and prevent crime.

Excellence in Policing – Projects that improve LMPD’s readiness, training, operating standards and procedures and business practices.

Health and Well-Being of LMPD Officers – Initiatives that support LMPD officers professionally and personally.

Community Partnerships – Projects that improve LMPD’s collaborations with citizens and various constituencies to improve public safety and Louisvillians’ quality of life.
