What is BALEAF?


BALEAF, founded in 1999, provides support to law enforcement families who have experienced a member killed in the line of duty, loss of life, serious injury or illness.


BALEAF can provide immediate funding for a range of needs in these difficult circumstances.


BALEAF supports all employees of law enforcement agencies within the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding counties.


The BALEAF Board of Directors includes active and retired officers, as well as survivors of members we have lost.


Since 1999, BALEAF has assisted 41 agencies and contributed to both the Twin Towers Fund and the Katrina Disaster Relief Fund. As of 2014, BALEAF has contributed over $650,000 to law enforcement families in need, thanks to the generosity of those who have donated to the Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund.

BALEAF provides:


  • Short term financial assistance
  • Referrals for psychological services, grief support, and spiritual support
  • Educational scholarships

Combined Charities

BALEAF is proud to announce that the San Francisco Police Department participated in a City-wide combined charities campaign, with over 50 other City agencies. SFPD was the top contributor, and BALEAF was the number one charity that SFPD members had selected.  As President of BALEAF I am so very proud.  On behalf of the BALEAF Board of Directors, we thank you!


The BALEAF Board of Directors wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.  Because of the generosity of the members of the San Francisco Police Department, BALEAF will be able to provide financial assistance to many more of our law enforcement families who need the support.
