In 1958, Barry Rosekind, a San Francisco Police Motorcycle officer lost his life in the line of duty leaving behind a young widow, Marilyn, and two young sons.  Marilyn at the age of 27 found herself raising Mark, 3 ½, and Gary, two years old, alone.
Marilyn dedicated her life to her two sons and never wavered in her passionate support of the “Law Enforcement Family.”  It was this continued devotion that led her to co-found the Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund (“BALEAF”). BALEAF is an organization dedicated to providing support for Law Enforcement families in their time of need.  Marilyn proudly served as BALEAF’s first President for ten years and remained active on the Board of Directors until her passing in 2021. Marilyn was instrumental in establishing BALEAF’s Scholarship Program.
Marilyn’s leadership, dedication, and never-ending support of BALEAF were legendary and widely respected throughout the Law Enforcement community.  
The Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund would like to acknowledge and honor Marilyn’s devotion and commitment to law enforcement families with the establishment of the Marilyn Rosekind Memorial Scholarship Program.


Scholarship applicants must be a dependent of a sworn or non-sworn employee (active, retired or deceased) of a Law Enforcement Agency within the 9 Bay Area Counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma).
