When Sheriff Jon Lopey was first elected, he immediately created a non-profit charitable organization with the name of the Sheriff Lopey Foundation. This charity focused on enhancing the lives of seniors, youth, military veterans and law enforcement professionals. Jon had offered the majority of his sheriff’s salary to this endeavor, however, as the president of this foundation, I can ensure you that Jon exceeded this promise by providing more than 100% of these wages.
Thanks to the sincere and generous hearts of Sheriff Lopey and his wife Maxine, as well as faithful supporters, the Foundation has contributed over 1.1 million dollars to the residents County of Siskiyou. Additionally, the Sheriff choose not to receive employee benefits, thus saving the County additional expenditures.
Sheriff Lopey, Maxine and the remaining five board members, dedicated hundreds of hours to the people and institutions of Siskiyou County providing both financial and personal support.
The Sheriff Lopey Foundation is closing the doors after nine years of gratifying service and would like to thank all those who have donated to this charity. Together we have enriched the lives of Siskiyou County residents.
