A letter from the Chair…

As a citizen of Greenville County, I am watching Greenville grow and expand in front of my eyes. I want Greenville to remain a sought-after and safe place to live and call home. As citizens, we need to put forth efforts to maintain the Greenville we know and love.

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office is essential in maintaining safety and order in our community. These brave men and women work tirelessly to protect our community and our property. Some resources aiding Deputies in this mission are allocated through the county’s budget; however, many are not afforded in the budget and therefore not provided. There are countless tools required to fulfill the agency’s duties that are not allocated through the budget, such as tactical gear for the SWAT team, drones and off-road vehicles used to navigate challenging terrain for the search and rescue teams, and K-9s, to name a few.

I respectfully ask you to support your local law enforcement through the Greenville County Sheriff’s Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations made to the foundation are tax-deductible to the donor and allow us to purchase cutting-edge equipment and technology for the many GCSO specialized teams, including the SWAT team, Search and Rescue, Dive Team, Drone Team, and K9 units. Your contributions empower our specialized teams to respond more effectively to critical situations, ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents.

Another significant purpose of the foundation is to provide scholarships to children of deputies attending college. The families of our brave deputies often face financial burdens, especially when their loved ones are injured or lose their lives in the line of duty. Scholarships offered by the foundation help ease the financial strain on these families, ensuring that their children can access quality education and pursue their dreams. By supporting the organization, you are directly contributing to the well-being of these families and honoring the sacrifices made by our deputies.

By supporting the organization that provides scholarships to children of deputies and supplies vital equipment to specialized teams, you make a tangible difference in the lives of those who dedicate themselves to keeping us safe. Your donation demonstrates your commitment to our community’s safety, security, and well-being.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Respectfully,
Karen Lizurick
Chair GSF
