Mission

Our strategy for charitable giving is three-fold. First and foremost, we help the families of fallen public safety personnel by providing immediate living and medical expenses within the first 48 hours after a documented line of duty death. Second, it is our mission to assist individuals who suffer a catastrophic injury or illness in the line of duty and may have an extended recovery resulting in a prolonged absence from their occupation; or are unable to return to work due to the injury or illness. This aid helps to offset medical, rehabilitation, and living expenses that may not be covered by insurance. Third, we assist the children of public safety personnel to continue on to post-secondary education, particularly in situations in which a parent has died in the line of duty.
