The Hundred Club of Connecticut is a charitable, non-profit, tax exempt organization which provides financial assistance to families of police officers, correction officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty. The club consists of over 2400 members from all walks of life who are committed to this objective.
Since the founding of the Club in 1967, 247 of our brave public servants have made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.
When a line of duty death occurs, the spouse/family is given an initial grant of $10,000. The Executive Director maintains frequent follow-up with the family regarding financial needs. The Club provides computers to children as well as educational scholarships to colleges and vocational schools. Over 145 children and surviving spouses have taken advantage of this Scholarship Program which has become the pride of The Hundred Club. Also, the Special Assistance Program provides for medical, dental and other services the family might need.
The Hundred Club is unique in the overall assistance it provides to the surviving spouse and children of those who have died in the line of duty. In the forty-seven years of its existence, more than $12,000,000 has been given to family members covering a multitude of financial necessities.
Our membership has steadily grown to its present level and our programs and services are evolving as new family needs are identified. Club members are proud of their association with this outstanding charity.
Membership in The Hundred Club states, – “We care for our public servants. We recognize their supreme sacrifice and we are morally bound to care for those who have given their all for us.” We are, indeed, – The Club with a Heart.
