As a non profit, donations made by individuals and companies directly fund a broad range of public safety programs including police and fire officer safety, training, equipment, and new technology. In addition, donations to MVPSF support the large variety of recreational and leadership development activities provided by MVPAL to youth between the ages of five and eighteen. These programs are designed to foster mutual understanding between youth and police officers through a non-confrontational setting and to divert them away from gangs and criminal activity.
None of these programs would be feasible under the City budget, as approximately 90% of the Mountain View Police Department's and 92.5% of the Mountain View Fire Department's annual budgets go towards paying officers and other department personnel.
MVPSF is a 501(c)(3) corporation with federal tax ID number 47-1030635
We don't have a office, but please call and we would be happy to meet with you to discuss our goals and objectives.
