Established in 1974 ~ Serving Indiana's Finest

The Trooper Bartram Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 organization that has been established to assist people in need and fund the annual Bartram Christmas for Kids event. Needy individuals and families in our community go without proper food, shelter, and the essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, and/or divorce. Money raised during our annual fundraiser goes toward our Trooper Bartram Christmas for Kids (Shop with a Cop), Trooper Teddy Bears, and the Traumatic Loss/In Need Assistance program.

While all of us are susceptible to hard times; children, elderly, and military families are at the most risk. They make up the largest number of clients we serve.

With the generous support of folks like you, we will be able to help many of these families and individuals, not only to meet essential daily needs but assist them in working toward a brighter future with our programs.

A note from the Co-Founder:
"The reason this program is so dear to my heart is my brother, Trooper James (Pat) Bartram, was one of the officers who took the kids shopping every year. He was killed in the line of duty and we started helping out with programs just like this because we know how much it meant to the kids. Thanks so much for your continued support. We count on you every year as we "lend a helping hand to those in need." - Sincerely, Kimberly S. Bartram Van Jelgerhuis"
