“Back The Blue NC was founded on July 6, 2020, with the main goal of uniting the North Carolina community of Law Enforcement and their family, friends, and supporters together to fight the "Defund The Police" movement. Quickly, the group evolved into a non-profit organization with the mission statement, "Giving back to those who are willing to give their all."
Back The Blue NC, Inc. is a non-profit 501-C3 organization that operates with an all-volunteer staff with 100 percent of all proceeds and donations going back to the law enforcement community.
Back The Blue NC will continue to raise funds for future law enforcement needs throughout the State of NC. Donations can be made online on the Back The Blue NC website: https://www.backthebluenc.org/
