The Washington State Patrol Memorial Foundation was founded on October 4, 1982, exclusively for charitable, educational, and benevolent purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation provides financial assistance to Washington State Patrol employees who become disabled in the line of duty, to surviving spouses and children of Fallen Officers and employees who die in the line of duty, and for the families of employees impacted by catastrophic injury or illness. The foundation also has an education Scholarship Program for employees or dependent children.
As of September 2022, the Washington State Patrol Memorial Foundation has provided just over two million dollars in financial assistance and scholarships to many departmental employees, retirees, and their families. Our programs are funded through employee contributions, outside donations, an annual Memorial Foundation dinner and raffle, as well as through the sale of collectable memorabilia.
