About Us

“As an observer riding in a police car in New York City, we saw the risks police officers take and how they put their lives on the line every time they go out. We realized how fortunate we have been in our lives, and we want to do and give something back to our community.” – Tore and Mona Steen, founders

The Utah 1033 Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2011 to honor Utah’s fallen officers by providing immediate financial support to their families. In 2013 we introduced the Leadership Awards scholarship program for the children of Utah’s active law enforcement officers. As our foundation grows and matures, we will continue to expand our programs.

Our organization is run by a three-person Board of Directors and also has a dedicated Board of Advisors that includes some members of the families the foundation has supported.

The foundation is located in Park City and our focus is statewide across Utah. Our community’s broad skill base and philanthropic nature allow us manage the organization with minimal expenses, relying on a considerable amount of donated time and effort. As a result, almost all of the financial contributions to the foundation fund our programs directly.
