The Beneficiaries:

The PAR Fund: The Police Assistance and Relief Fund provides confidential financial assistance to members of the Baltimore County Police Department in times of personal hardship through Grants. These Grants are made possible entirely through the generosity of private sector individual and corporate donations.

The PAR Fund was established to respond to personal emergencies of Baltimore County officers and is based on a belief that officers should not be burdened by financial stress. The PAR Fund is a non-profit Maryland corporation.

MARC: As the non-profit arm of the 149 acre Ag-Center and Farm Park - "The People's Farm", MARC utilizes the Farm Park as an outdoor classroom providing the public unfettered access to agriculture, teaches the public about the importance of agriculture, demonstrates innovative agricultural practices, and helps grow the next generation farmers.
