The Philip Mahan Davis Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and assistance to the families of Alabama Police Officers who were killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.
Established in 2011, the Foundation strengthens the relationship between the Alabama Police, its business and civic leaders, and its citizenry. It allows us to express our gratitude to the fallen Officers’ families for the ultimate sacrifice of their loved one.
REASONS FOR THE FOUNDATION
Since the first officer to die in the line of duty, there have been more than 550 Alabama Police Officers who have sacrificed their lives for our City. The families of these brave Officers are supported by the Department and other organizations, but as one might imagine, the cost in terms of financial, emotional, and psychological support is overwhelming. Other, perhaps less-known risks associated with being a Police Officer are the stressors of the job. These stressors often lead to disastrous consequences such as when a Police Officer takes his own life. Finally, as a tribute to the heroic lives that these Officers led, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation has built a permanent memorial to these brave men and women.
WHY CONTRIBUTE TO THE FOUNDATION
By supporting these initiatives, our public-private partnership provides the Alabama Police Memorial Foundation with the means to achieve our goals. It is a sign to all the citizens of Alabama, as well as our nation, that Alabama’s corporate family and business leaders care about its Police Officers and their families. Your support is a reminder that when troubled times arise, we come together as families do, and provide comfort, support, and protection for one another.
