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). Sgt. 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 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (#47- 5206410).

Public Service Employees/First Responders severely injured while on duty have significant financial needs that are often unmet by public or department support including; medical bills, transportation, refitting homes to support physical limitations, partial or complete loss of income, etc. The MC-1 Foundation focuses on these heroes’ needs. In fact, from 2014 to March 2024, the Foundation offered assistance to a number of public service employees/families, with a total of over $392,000 being donated to those families.

We hope you will support those who have given the greatest sacrifice while protecting and serving our community.
