The Pilchuck Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, community-supported foundation focused on assisting the police and fire departments of Granite Falls, Washington, in obtaining unfunded equipment, technology, and training. In addition, the Foundation supports a scholarship program for graduates of both local High Schools who are interested in pursuing careers in fire safety or law enforcement. We also focus on community disaster preparedness and coordinate the Map Your Neighborhood program, as well as help the Granite Falls Fire District #17 coordinate the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program.
