The financial needs of our law enforcement officers often far exceed the budgetary support. This is particularly true where Oklahoma State Troopers are concerned. Our Foundation was established to help bridge that gap for those who put their lives on the line every day to protect us.


Our Mission

The mission of the Oklahoma State Troopers Foundation “OSTF” is to assist in fulfilling needs of Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers and their families as well as the organization by providing grants and/or funds for:

  • Financial Support
  • Family & Mental Health Services
  • Education, Training & Outreach
  • Equipment Needs

Our Team
