The law enforcement community has a long history of supporting non-profit groups. Blue Line BJJ continues that tradition by supporting non-profits both locally and nationally. One of the primary ways we show our support is through the “Roll Call Seminar” series. In those seminars 100% of the proceeds get donated to a worthy charity. Some of the national charities Blue Line BJJ supports are listed below.
Concerns of Police Survivors C.O.P.S. (www.nationalcops.org) – Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. C.O.P.S. has over 50 Chapters nationwide that work with survivors at the grass-roots level. C.O.P.S. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. C.O.P.S. programs and services are funded by grants and donations.
C.O.P.S. programs for survivors include the National Police Survivors’ Conference held each May during National Police Week, scholarships, peer-support at the national, state, and local levels, “C.O.P.S. Kids” counseling reimbursement program, the “C.O.P.S. Kids” Summer Camp, “C.O.P.S. Teens” Outward Bound experience for young adults, special retreats for spouses, parents, siblings, adult children, extended family, and co-workers, trial and parole support, and other assistance programs.
Mission 22 (www.mission22.com) – According to a VA study each day over 20 veterans take their own lives. But together we can win the war against veteran suicide. Join Mission 22 to let our vets know that they have an army behind them. Your donation dollars assist us in getting veterans treatment when they need it the most. Right now. Mission 22 currently has two treatment programs that focus on Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress. The goal is not to medicate and mask the problems our veterans are facing but to heal them. The creation of these Mission 22 Healing Projects will allow us to support even more veterans through groundbreaking treatments. Elder Heart is the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization behind Mission 22. Because of their own personal battles with PTSD and TBI they have made it their mission to raise awareness, enlist support, and end veteran suicide in America.
We Defy Foundation (www.wedefyfoundation.org) – Our Mission – Through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fitness training we will provide combat veterans suffering from life-disabling injuries and/or PTSD a long term means to overcome their challenges. Our values – WE ARE COMMITTED to our country, our combat veterans, our team, and accomplishing our mission. WE EMPOWER through integrity, personal accountability and selfless service. WE EVOLVE to stay relevant and effective for the long term. We Defy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund (www.nleomf.com) – The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Washington, DC. The Memorial Fund built and continues to maintain the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial—the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. It is a principal organizer of the National Police Week observance each May and hosts a Candlelight Vigil each May 13th to honor all fallen officers. In addition, the Fund maintains the largest, most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research into officer fatality trends and issues, and serves as an information clearinghouse.
More recently, the Memorial Fund is building the National Law Enforcement Museum, currently under construction adjacent to the Memorial in Washington, DC. The Museum will tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research and education.
Special Olympics (www.specialolympics.org) – Special Olympics is often referred to as the “charity of choice” for law enforcement. The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. We are helping to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place — one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.
