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 Granite Falls (WA) High Schools who are interested in pursuing careers in fire safety or law enforcement.  We also focus on community preparedness during disasters, and coordinate the Map Your Neighborhood program in the Granite Falls area, as well as help the Granite Falls Fire District #17 coordinate the Certified Emergency Response Teams (CERT).
