What is the Cherokee Sheriff’s Foundation?

The foundation gathers resources to support programs in a partnership with the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office. This non- profit organization is a public/private partnership with the citizens of Cherokee County that provides support not available from government funding to supplement the needs of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office. Support can be in the form of financial contributions, equipment, or gifts-in-kind. The Cherokee Sheriff’s Foundation offers citizens a tax-exempt means of supporting law enforcement in our community.

The mission of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Foundation is to obtain public and private funds to purchase resources, as authorized by the Board of Directors that will support the activities of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office and will enhance its ability to render exemplary public service.
