Welcome to BAlEAF
A nonprofit charity to assist Bay Area law enforcement officers and their families who have experienced a member killed in the line of duty, suffered a serious injury or illness, or similar catastrophic event (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity).
BALEAF's coverage area stretches from the Wine Country in the north to Silicon Valley in the south, from the shores of the Pacific to the edge of the Central Valley, housing more than 7 million people in nine counties and 101 cities. The nine counties that are supported by BALEAF are Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma. BALEAF has occasionally awarded outside of this area when approved by the Board.
HOW DO WE OPERATE?
100% of your donation goes to the law enforcement families! PERIOD! BALEAF's low administrative expenses are covered personally by the Board Members through their annual voluntary donation. These are two of the many reasons donating to BALEAF is very sensible.
To date, BALEAF provided support and assistance to sworn and non-sworn employees of agencies throughout Northern California in the amount of over $1.9M! This amount was wholly made possible by generous donations from our supporters. Recipients included members of Police Departments, Sheriff's Offices, Dispatchers, District Attorney's Office, Probation Departments, California Highway Patrol.
From the President, Fabian Brown
