We, the Washington State Patrol Memorial Foundation, are entrusted to preserve the memory of Washington State Patrol fallen officers and to provide assistance to active and retired Washington State Patrol employees and their families in times of need.



Unfortunately, telephone scams are starting up again. The recent scam calls indicate donations will be given to the Gunderson family. As a reminder, the Washington State Patrol / WSP Memorial Foundation will never call you asking for money.

Scammers are working hard to try to take advantage of your good heart. Never provide personal or financial information to someone over the phone.


Secure ways to make donations to the WSPMF:

1 - Using Venmo, donations can be sent to @WSP-MemorialFoundation.

2 – Go into any Chase Bank Branch and make a check deposit into the “Washington State Patrol Memorial Foundation” account.

3 – Using your own bank, you can log in online or through your mobile app and make a donation using Zelle. Donations can be sent to our WSPMF number, 360-597-4411, or email, wspmemorialfoundation@gmail.com There are no fees with using Zelle.
