The Foundation was created to provide expedited financial assistance to FLEOA members and their families in times of need. Specifically, the Foundation provides prompt assistance to the families of F.L.E.O.A. members killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. Additionally, the Foundation provides support for members who experience a debilitating medical ailment. Since its inception, the FLEOA Foundation has also awarded more than $750,000 in annual scholastic incentive awards to its members' children entering college, as well as $3 million in emergency financial support.
As a charitable organization, the FLEOA Foundation participates in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #54726), and applies all funds raised in support of its members. Whether it is for a line of duty death, injury or medical issue, the Foundation responds and delivers help to its members in need. The FLEOA Foundation prides itself as the "First Responder" for its members, and provides prompt support without any bureaucracy.
The FLEOA Foundation hosts an annual awards ceremony to recognize a distinguished "Law Enforcement Leader of the Year." During this awards ceremony, the FLEOA Foundation also recognizes a "Law Enforcement Patriot of the Year" that has demonstrated outstanding support for those who protect our nation and its citizenry. The Foundation is committed to recognizing those deserving of these distinguished awards, regardless of their political affiliation.

The FLEOA Foundation is staffed by a 100% volunteer work force and uses an average of 95% of its donations for federal law enforcement officers and their families. This is done in furtherance of the honorable philosophy of the FLEOA Foundation founder, Robert "Bob" Van Etten: "When a federal law enforcement officer is in need of emergency assistance, help is just a phone-call away."
