Badges & Benevolence Law Enforcement Foundation

Badges & Benevolence is a qualified law enforcement foundation (non-profit) which directly supports the mission and community programs of the Watkinsville Police Department. 

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a measure that gives a tax credit to those who donate to qualified law enforcement foundations. Each Georgia Taxpayer can contribute up to $5,000 (if filing single) or $10,000 (if filing jointly or as a corporation). 

To contribute, taxpayers must apply for pre-approval. Once approval is received, they may contribute to Badges & Benevolence and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their 2023 taxes.
