Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The W.A.R. Fund strives to assist injured police officers in Greenville County, SC. Currently, our benefit is only for Greenville County Sheriff's Office deputies. When any police officer is killed in the Line of Duty, it usually a highly visible event that is covered by news media and there is an outpouring of support by the community and even nation-wide. However, when a police officer suffers an injury in the Line of Duty, this only sometimes is publicly known. Many officers are injured that is not known farther than their own agency or even smaller platoon level. Police officers often survive on secondary employment to supplement their income that is not covered by Workmans Comp during an injury. The W.A.R. Fund seeks to financially assist injured officers immediately to cover any extra expenses or loss of income that is not covered by Workman's Comp.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The W.A.R. Fund strives to accomplish the sustainment and support of any police officer injured in the line of duty to get them through an incident, sometimes being very traumatic, and financially assist them to ensure their families stability, financial well-being and to show the gratitude of their community for the risks they take on.

The W.A.R. Fund strategy is to have sustained fundraising apparatuses to be able to provide for any and all levels of support needed by police officers injured in the line of duty in Greenville County, SC. It is also imperative to maintain a foothold of representation amongst the officers to ensure awareness of our benefit, and to have immediate knowledge of when these injury events occur.

The W.A.R. Fund currently fundraises through outside events (golf tournament, 5k Race, Pistol Match) that is sponsored by, partnered with, or participated in by many police and government agencies in Greenville County, SC. This increases awareness that our benefit exists as well. Currently, our Board of Directors Consists of 7 Certified Law Enforcement Officers and 3 Local Civilian Business Leaders that have the capability of knowing when injuries occur within the agencies. The agency itself has no control over the W.A.R. Fund as we are a separate entity. This also ensures accuracy and efficiency of the W.A.R. Fund Benefit when injuries occur.

In the fiscal year 2017, The Wounded and Recovering Fund assisted 5 injured deputies and the family of one deceased police officer with $9000.00 to help with financial bills and income lost due to Line of Duty injuries and death. (Note* Our Line of Duty Death Benefit was removed from our bylaws in 2017 to focus solely on injuries sustained in the line of duty)

Our long-term goal is to expand our reach and coverage of assisting injured officers to include all agencies within Greenville County, SC and then beyond.
