Our annual Blue Nite Gala is an opportunity for the Saint Paul Police Foundation (SPPF)to celebrate the achievements of the Saint Paul Police Department (SPPD). Your support of the Blue Nite Gala would be an outstanding salute to the women and men of the SPPD who do so much to keep us safe. Join us in celebrating our Saint Paul Police Department and work towards building a stronger, safer Saint Paul.
The Saint Paul Police Department is committed to delivering trusted service with respect to our Saint Paul community. After leading the department to historical levels of community engagement and service during the last six years, Chief Todd Axtell will retire in June 2022. The Saint Paul Police Foundation's board of directors invites you to join in supporting the work of our officers -and celebrating the contributions of Chief Axtell - at the Blue Nite Gala.
The Blue Nite Gala is an annual event to fund the Saint Paul Police Foundation and their work to support the police department. Since 2005, the foundation has provided more than $5 million in support to the Saint Paul Police Department. The Foundation depends entirely on the generosity of corporations, individuals, foundations, and other philanthropic organizations for project and operating budgets. Our police department depends on the foundation to support programs that enhance the community. The Foundation is the primary vehicle for tax-exempt gifts and grants from individuals, businesses, and philanthropies for the Saint Paul Police Department.
