Why Give Locally?

Here's what your donation can do:
Support from residents and businesses will go toward supporting officers in your city. It will encourage them, help them in times of need and dramatically improve morale within their ranks.
Community programs such as scholarships, Little League support and officer-led activities are also directly impacted by your donation. Without your support, many of these crucial programs would not exist within our community.
Your support will also help fallen officers and their families in your local community and across the nation. Help during devastating events such as these is critical for our officers and their loved ones.


The Kalispell Police Association proudly represents the brave men and women who serve the city of Kalispell and protect members of its community.

Our association consists of members who share our goals of building positive community relations and ensuring our officers are equipped with the training and support necessary to protect Kalispell.

To help us better serve you and our shared community, please join our mission and donate now.
