To financially assist first responders and their families in times of tragedy.
100 Clubs have existed for many years all over the country with the goal of providing immediate financial support to the families of fallen officers. 100 Clubs first started in Florida in the early 1980’s when a state trooper was killed in the line of duty in Manatee County. In 1983 the Florida Highway Patrol commanding officer met with Sheriff Aubrey Rogers and his staff to discuss the need for such a club in Collier County. The Collier County 100 Club was incorporated in 1985 to provide support for the families of fallen officers.
The Collier County 100 Club must receive a written request from an agency’s commander in order to disburse funds. Most importantly, the goal is to disperse these funds to the first responder, or their family, within twenty-four hours. It has long been known that the need for financial relief is immediate and before other forms of support become available.
