How To Love Our Cops

Why do we do what we do!

Thank You to our Donors for the Big Day of Giving!

BDOG 2024 Thank You

This year How 2 Love Our Cops was chosen to participate in the 2024 Big Day of Giving (BDOG) a 24-hour giving celebration from the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. The regional effort inspires people to support causes they love in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties. This year's donations from across the area surpassed $100 million raised since it began in 2013.

THANK YOU to the donors that gave generously to help us continue our mission to reach and support our law enforcement families with peer support, educational resources, and encouragement events.

Did you miss out on donating with BDOG? You can still support How 2 Love Our Cops directly here.

"You can also support our mission year-round to educate, encourage and equip law enforcement families to thrive relationally, emotionally, and spiritually."

We believe in strengthening families on these three foundational areas:

Building Resilience

Thriving Together

We educate, encourage and equip law enforcement

families to thrive relationally, emotionally and spiritually.


We serve active duty and retired law enforcement families, including those wounded in the line of duty.


We create resources, events, and programs that educate, encourage, and equip law enforcement families to help them love and support their officers. We do this by building into homes proactively, and meet them in crisis and its aftermath. This support creates positivity in the life of officers and their families, setting the tone and laying a healthy foundation that will help them to thrive on duty and off. 

With all of the opposition to our officers these days, this job is getting tougher. Many of our officers are stumbling beneath the weight of all this job gives them.

The typical American will experience three overwhelming incidents in their lifetime. The average officer will experience 200 of these types of incidents in their career. The result has an impact on the mental, physical, and spiritual well-being of our officers--whether they choose to acknowledge it or not.

We believe the family is the critical piece of keeping our cops healthy. We’ve seen it done in the lives of our volunteers and those we come alongside. We’ve lived it! Educated and supported families have been and will be a critical factor in keeping the thin blue line intact…for such a time as this.

We are constantly learning, tuning in to experts, and listening to the hearts and thoughts of law enforcement families across the United States, Canada, and beyond. Where we don’t have expertise, we partner with others to bring the very best resources to law enforcement families. Our conferences, books, blogs, seminars, trainings, and even our fundraisers are designed to incorporate education, encouragement, and positive perspectives.

It is our pursuit to continue to learn and grow in our own lives, so that we can provide the very best resources for you.


How2LoveOurCops is a 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to the relational, emotional and spiritual wellness of law enforcement families.
