The Foundation is the heart and helping hands of the
FBI National Academy Associates, Inc.,
the world's strongest law enforcement leadership network.
The Foundation's mission, now and into the future, is the care and support of members and their families who are in distress, or in harm's way, and the continued educational development of our members and their families, as well as the members of other FBI affiliated nonprofit law enforcement associations. The Foundation is a separate legal entity from the associates and is governed by a seperate Board of Directors. However, the Foundation is connected to and supports the associates.
History of the Foundation:
On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina made landfall along the Gulf Coast in Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida and became one of the costliest hurricanes in history. The members of the FBINAA immediately came together and donated approximately $25,000 for the purpose of providing support to fellow FBINAA graduates. Florida Chapter President Rick Beseler, representing the entire FBINAA, drove to Mississippi and handed out $1000 in cash to FBINAA graduates who, in many cases, lost everything. Afterward the NAA Executive Board recognized that our 501(c)(3) status did not cover such aid. From that circumstance, the Charitable Foundation was developed.
Following review and approval by the association's Executive Board in Boston in July 2010, the Foundation was incorporated as a charitable organization in Virginia in August 2010. In September 2010 the IRS designated the FBINAA Charitable Foundation, Inc. as a tax-exempt organization fully empowered to pursue its stated charitable, education, and scientific objectives. The Foundation was formally launched in December 2010.
Charitable and Educational Activities and Programs:
The charitable purpose of our Foundation is to provide relief for association members and their families who are in unusually dire circumstances, due to calamity, debilitating hardships or illnesses, natural disaster, or other terrible circumstances to include a member's on- duty death or serious injury and to the members and family members of other FBI affiliated nonprofit law enforcement associations.
The educational purpose of our Foundation is to offer scholarships for educational and professional development opportunities to members of the association and/or their children and grandchildren, and to members of other FBI affiliated nonprofit law enforcement associations and their children.
The initial scientific purpose of our Foundation is to establish a Law Enforcement\Criminal Justice Science and Innovation Award to annually recognize an individual or organization that has made the most significant overall contribution to the profession through the introduction of a new or significantly improved law enforcement\criminal justice product, technology, process or technique.

Welcome to the FBINAA Foundation web page and your portal to who and what we are, as well as how you too can become an important contributor to the Foundation effort. Established in 2010, The FBINAA Foundation is a not-for-profit organization designed with three core activities or programs: (1) Charitable, (2) Educational, and (3) Scientific. Please take the time to browse the website so you can learn more about the programs we currently offer and those we want to add in the future. I think you will find all of them to be worthwhile endeavors.
We have a number of donor programs established to make donating easy and to fit into any fiscal window, from individual to corporate levels.
