Profile of 100 Club of Arizona, a Nonprofit Organization in Phoenix

By

100 Club of Arizona is a nonprofit organization doing business in the Greater Phoenix area. I posed ten questions to a representative of the 100 Club of Arizona in an effort to familiarize Phoenix area residents with the organization. Here are the responses I received.

What is the name of the organization?

The 100 Club of Arizona is a non-profit that provides immediate financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are killed or injured in the line of duty, and provides resources to enhance their safety and welfare.

How long has the organization been operating in the Phoenix area?

The 100 Club was started in 1968.

Does the organization serve a particular geographic area?

We serve the entire state of Arizona.

Who is most likely to benefit from services provided by the organization?

We serve the men and women of public safety. We provide benefits to all Arizona municipal, county, tribal, and state law enforcement officers including correctional, probation and parole officers, and firefighters.

Are there requirements or prerequisites for people to access your services?

In order to receive our benefits and programs, you must be a public safety officer or firefighter. In some cases, such as our Scholarship program, the immediate family members are eligible.

Three things about 100 Club of Arizona that people might not know.

  1. Since its inception in 1968, the 100 Club of Arizona has given more than 2.6 million dollars to over 700 public safety officers, firefighters and their families.
  2. The 100 Club of Arizona originally started out as the Phoenix 100 Club serving only Phoenix police officers and through the support of the community was able to expand and grow into the organization it is today which serves all public safety officers and firefighters throughout the state of Arizona.
  3. The 100 Club provides many benefits to the first responders of Arizona beyond our line of duty death, non-line of duty death, and line of duty serious injury benefits. Our Safety Enhancement Stipend Program provides funding for public safety agencies to purchase safety equipment or training that directly enhances the safety of their officers or firefighters. We have a partnership with the Arizona State Bar Young Lawyers Division, titled Wills for Heroes that allows us to go to various public safety agencies around the state each month and offer free wills for first responders and their eligible beneficiary. We also recently launched a scholarship program that aids family members of public safety officers and firefighters who wish to pursue a higher education.
