The Lynn Sowers Memorial Foundation was created in memory of Deputy Lynn Sowers following her tragic death in 1995. Her fellow employees took up a collection to be given to her family. It was her family’s wish that the money be used for someone in need within the Sheriff’s Office family. The Foundation was established in her honor.
The Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established to financially assist Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office employees who have suffered an unforeseen catastrophic event. To date, the Foundation has distributed over $1,000,000.00 to employees in need, while protecting the identity and privacy of all recipients.
