Founded in 1986, the West Valley City Honorary Colonels Association is a 501.c.3 nonprofit corporation, created to provide relief and aid to members of the West Valley City Police Department and their family members during time of crisis such as serious illness, injury, or death all subject from in the line of duty or other extenuating circumstances. Along with providing relief, the West Valley City Honorary Colonels Association was created to solicit funds and receive contributions or donations and to distribute the same in accordance with the directions of the contributors or donors.
All money raised goes to the following causes:
Support for Injured Officers
Support for the Families of Fallen Officers
Sponsor Academy and FBI scholarships
West Valley Police Annual Awards Banquet
Crossing Guard Banquet
Take 5th & 6th graders who work as Crossing guards to Lagoon
Children’s Justice Center
Programs for at-risk kids
Women in Law Enforcement
Officer Training and Equipment
We raise money to support these causes through membership dues, private donations and events such as a Bike Rally and the Annual Honorary Colonels Golf Tournament and sponsorship donations for the Annual Awards Banquet.
Together we work to support those who “protect and serve” our community
how you can help?
Active member involvement and membership dues are what keeps this organization moving forward and successful. Together as Colonels we meet with the West Valley Police Chief once a month to assess needs within the department and evaluate the causes we want to support. We welcome all interested in joining!
Our group supports many great causes chief of these is being there for the Men and Women who risk everything to keep our community safe. In order to raise the funds we need for the causes we support as an organization we hold a few fund raisers a year. We are always in need of sponsors for these events. Sponsoring has many benefits.
If being a member does not work for you, for any reason, every penny donated to the colonels helps support great causes. The Honorary Colonels is a 501.c.3 so you can take advantage of the tax benefits of your donations. We welcome any and all donations.
