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.

What we aim to solve

Our organization provides several types of monetary assistance to public safety personnel and/or their families. Our most common forms of assistance rendered are providing assistance with post-secondary education to: 1) Surviving children of a fallen member of the public safety community. 2) Students graduating high school who have a parent serving in a public safety role or who themselves are serving as a member of the public safety community.
