In keeping with its mission as a 501(c)(3) charitable entity, MSTAF provides assistance to families affected by law enforcement tragedies and supports other 501(c)(3) charities and charitable causes throughout Michigan.
In addition, MSTAF administers funds for the Michigan State Police Fallen Trooper Memorial (maintenance of the memorial wall located at the MSP Training Academy in Lansing, Michigan) and the Len Depression Fund (for treatment of depression/suicide prevention of enlisted members of the Michigan State Police).
