Abbotsford – The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) presents its third annual breakfast fundraising event “Crime is Toast” October 25, 2017 to raise funds in support of the Abbotsford Police Department’s community programs. Funds raised will enable the APF to help Abbotsford Police achieve their goal of making Abbotsford the Safest City in BC.
Building on the success from last year’s inaugural event, the APF has set a fundraising goal of $50,000. Every dollar donated to the APF helps ensure APD special initiatives are a success. The funds raised will continue to support:
Project Band-Aid Uniformed APD Officers visit children in hospital, leaving them with a toy ‘Hector the Protector’.
Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament Over 750 students playing to promote positive choices for youth through basketball.
Abbotsford Police Camp A week long day camp for kids, interacting with local police and learning new skills.
Youth Making Positive Choices An initiative to engage youth and empower them to make good life choices. Currently the program focuses on educating youth on the dangers of drug use.
Specialized Equipment Each year we strive to purchase specialty equipment for the APD, tools that fall outside their annual operating budget that will help them police the community.
The breakfast, with APD Chief Constable Bob Rich, will build awareness of public safety, the work of the APD, and the Abbotsford Police Foundation. APF President Kevin Boonstra invites you to attend and bring along your colleagues, family and friends to show support for the great work of the brave men and women of the Abbotsford Police Department.

In accordance with their Donation Policy the APF provides a charitable receipt for every qualified donation over $100. Supporters who purchase a table (8 seats) will receive a tax receipt for 50% of the total.
