"All of these new Board members embody the spirit of community and bring energy and talent to the table" states Julie Powell, former Secretary of the Foundation.  "David (Valentine), owner of Valentine's Marine, has been a long time sponsor and supporter of the Foundation.  Denise (Sivetts) comes from a law enforcement family and has been volunteering for the past few years.  Marcus (Black), a Denver Police Department Officer who was wounded while on duty in 2021, was an MC-1 Foundation beneficiary.  We are very fortunate to have them by our side as we continue to strengthen our team."

"MC-1 is stewarded by a highly engaged and committed Board of Trustees," says Mark Miller, President of the MC-1 Foundation. "We are thrilled that each of these new Board members offers a variety of expertise and a shared understanding of how local giving can impact the needs of our Colorado Public Service employees. Having a longtime volunteer, a sponsor, and a beneficiary join our Board says alot about what we are doing and what we will continue to do for our injured first responders."

President: Mark Miller; Jefferson County Sheriff's Department Deputy

Vice-President: Dave Swanson; Owner of First Line Distributors and former Deputy Sheriff, Jefferson County Sheriff's Office

About the MC-1 Foundation:

The MC-1 Foundation was started as the MC-1 Honor Run, a fundraiser motorcycle ride for the family of Sgt. Dave Baldwin of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (E.O.W. 1/26/14).  Sergeant Baldwin, whose radio call sign was MC-1, was killed in the line of duty after being struck on his motorcycle by a wrong-way driver.   Since that event, the MC-1 Foundation, which is a 100% volunteer organization, has grown to become a tax-exempt organization under Section 503(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (#47-5206410).

The mission of the Foundation is to provide financial support to public service employees and/or their families in the event that they are hurt or killed while on duty providing service for their communities.  Between 2014 and July 2023, the MC-1 Foundation offered financial assistance to 40 public service employees/families with a total of over $353,000 being donated to those families.
