KSP Employee Tornado Relief Fund

We pledge our support to the Kentucky State Police employees every day. They now need our help as they, personally, have been hindered with the devastating tornadoes in western Kentucky. KSP employees have lost homes, vehicles, need lodging, food and other necessary help. Please help us help them by donating to the KSP Employee Tornado Relief Fund.



The Mission of the Kentucky State Police Foundation is to support the agency and it’s employees through partnerships with the community and the private sector to promote the interests of the Kentucky State Police in service to the citizens of the commonwealth.



The Foundation supports the professional men and women of the Kentucky State Police.  We build relationships within our community to provide financial support for necessary equipment, training, and other critical resources when normal funding is not sufficient.  As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the KSP Foundation also promotes public confidence, the understanding of police activities and community outreach through programs and events.

Support the professional men and women of the Kentucky State Police through our Foundation.

Our Heroes Need Heroes

The KSP Foundation is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. Your support makes possible important unfunded initiatives such as a Driver Skills Track, indoor firing range, and access to specialized training, not available locally.

Without donors and sponsor support, the KSP Foundation could not provide this critical financial assistance to the agency’s programs that directly improves service to the citizens of our Commonwealth.

Why would KSP need my financial assistance?

Your support enables the Foundation to serve as the bridge between the restricted general budget that the Agency receives, and specialized needs that were not funded, or even a need, during the budget planning process. With your help we can provide those funds, find corporate partners to share that burden, or create a collaborative partnership to meet those immediate needs for the Agency to better serve the Commonwealth.
