The Matt Haverkamp Foundation was established in November 2005 in remembrance of a beloved son, dear friend, and K9 police officer. The purpose of The Foundation is to continue Matt Haverkamp’s legacy and keep his memory alive by supporting the law enforcement agencies in communities in the greater Cincinnati area. Since The Foundation’s inception, we have been able to purchase 80 K9s with the more than $500,000 that have been raised. These great accomplishments have been made possible from the many participants in our two annual fundraising events, our sponsors, and our donors.

OUR GOAL FOR 2021 IS TO AID THE 2 DEPARTMENTS THAT HAVE REQUESTED OUR ASSISTANCE
