Our Mission: The Diplomatic Security Foundation (DSF) provides timely financial support and charitable contributions to members, and their immediate family, of the US Department of State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security and colleagues in the law enforcement and US foreign affairs community.
DSF is a 501c(3) charitable non-profit. Contributions are 100% tax-deductible.
The Diplomatic Security Special Agents Association (DSSAA) announces the fourth annual DS10K event will be held on Saturday, October 11th, at 8:00 am at the Burke Lake Park (Fairfax Station, VA).
Sponsored by the DSSAA, the DS10K is a fun run/walk to honor the Diplomatic Security community and those who have fallen in support thereof. Participation is open to all ages – young in age or young at heart! Additionally, volunteers are needed to assist along the route and to help with the logistics.

The Greenhouse Grill at DSTC generously "hosts" the DSF tip jar. Since its first appearance back in 2009, the tip jar has generated almost $5,000 for DSF. The lastest take from the tip jar was $500! Wow! That's a lot of piggybank money! Thanks to everyone who donates their change. It really adds up!
DSF Grants For 2013 Tops $70,000

Eight additional grants went to winners of the 2013 DSF Scholarship Award. DSF grants are unrestricted gifts, requiring no re-payment.
