To raise money through special events to fund college scholarships in the field of criminal justice and to help police officers and their families when an officer faces an unforeseen illness or injury outside the line of duty.

Project Blue was founded in 2010 in honor of Baytown native and Sugar Land Police Officer - Marcus Lee Zaruba.  Marcus died at the age of 29 from an aggressive form of cancer.  Marcus' illness highlighted the need for a safety-net charity for non-service-related injuries and illness. 

Project Blue is funded solely by donations.  We pay no salaries.  In the last six years we have donated more than $280,000 to police officers, and $29,500.00 to scholarships. 

We are a 501(c)3 non profit foundation and all donations are tax deductible.
