How to Donate to the Cullen and Bates Fund


The Virginia State Police Association has received many calls from citizens wanting to make donations in memory of Lt.-Pilot Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates.  Anyone wishing to make a donation may do so through the Association Emergency Relief Fund.


You may do so by mailing a check to the office, please notate in the memo section of your check “Lt. Cullen and/or Tpr. Bates” and if you are donating through the VSPA ERF website be sure to make that note “Lt. Cullen and/or Tpr. Bates” in the comments section. https://vspa.org/emergency-relief-fund/.


Donations are tax deductible through the ERF fund but more importantly 100% of the donation will go to the families. If you have any questions please feel free to call the VSPA office. VSPA Office 6944 Forest Hill Ave Richmond, VA 23225.
