Supporting Our Mission

APCO International supports its members and our industry through several financial programs. We welcome your contributions to these programs.

CAC and Silent Key Scholarship Programs

Scholarship donations are accepted throughout the year and disbursed to qualified APCO members for public safety job-related training. The APCO Institute administers both scholarship funds.

The Silent Key Scholarship program memorializes those who have participated in and contributed to APCO.

Contact APCO’s Accounting Department if you want to donate to the Silent Key Scholarship Program

The Commercial Advisory Council (CAC) Scholarship Program Fund allows commercial members to give back to the public safety community.

APCO Corporate Partner’s can incorporate a donation to the CAC Scholarship Fund into their agreement. APCO Annual Conference & Expo exhibitors may donate through the exhibitor portal for that year’s conference. All other commercial entities interested in donating to the CAC scholarship fund, contact Lisa C. Williams, Director of Corporate Outreach.

Sunshine Fund

The Sunshine Fund provides financial assistance to public safety communications professionals who experience a life-altering event that places a significant financial burden upon them or their immediate family. Financial grants are based on the nature of the event and the availability funds. Any APCO member may nominate a colleague as a recipient using the Sunshine Fund Request Form. A review panel will review the completed form and notify the nominator of the results. For more information, contact Ricky Marshall, Chief Administrative Officer.

Send donations to the APCO Accounting Department. Checks should be made payable to the “PSFA Sunshine Fund”.

Public Safety Foundation of America (PSFA)

The PSFA makes grants to support public and nonprofit public safety communications efforts. Learn more.
