About The Foundation

About The Foundation

Sheriff Michael McIntosh established the Sheriff’s Foundation in 2016. Its purpose: to pave the way for partnerships between the ACSO, business leaders, and community members to show compassion and kindness to residents and employees in Adams County. The Foundation provides resources to reach out to those in need with tangible assistance. Through the Sheriff’s Foundation, deputies and staff of the ACSO along with volunteer partners — who are deeply committed to serving their community — demonstrate care and concern for the elderly, sick, grief-stricken, and those facing personal hardships. Together we make an impact larger than individual efforts.  Lives are touched, Our community is strengthened.
