Who We Are
Our History and Who We Are
In 1972, a group of local Minneapolis businessmen and labor leaders organized the first Minnesota 100 Club, based out of Northeast Minneapolis. This group of people took the lead from the other 100 Clubs that had been formed around the country. The sole purpose at the time was to provide instant relief and aid to family members of First Responders who were killed in the line of duty. The Club is nearly 50 years old, and its supporters have spread throughout the State of Minnesota and our membership base is currently at an all-time high.
Increased Danger to our First Responder’s
The dangers of First Responder’s duties are increasing each year and with this increase, the need for a program such as the Minnesota 100 Club also increases. This requires additional membership and support for this worthy cause so we can continue to provide instant financial relief to surviving family members of First Responders who are killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
Who We Help
The purpose of the Minnesota 100 Club is to provide immediate financial assistance to the surviving families of First Responders who are seriously injured or killed while defending our safety. This includes City, County, State and Federal First Responders who are seriously injured or lose their lives while working for non-profits or government agencies within the borders of Minnesota.
How We Help
How We Help and How You Can too!
Our goal is to provide a bridge of financial assistance at a moment’s notice once a tragedy has happened. As a 501(c) (3), we respond quickly with financial support to immediate families of our First Responders who are either tragically injured or killed in the line of duty. The funds we provide help lessen the effects of the financial impact of a tragedy.
The Minnesota 100 Club receives no public funding. All donations must come from private individuals or organizations. Yearly memberships start at a $100 donation with the ability to contribute up to $5,000 or more. During the Club’s nearly 50 years of existence, it has paid in benefits to hundreds of families of First Responder’s who have died or been seriously injured while protecting our safety.
We count on our members to help us give back to those in need.
In recent years, The Club has increased their benefit allotment to up to $17,500, and monetary gifts are also given during the holiday time to families of the fallen with dependent children.
Surviving Families in the Twin Cities may now also qualify for discounted Professional Services provided by our partner Washburn-McReavy Funeral Chapels. Visit our Benefits page to learn more and to find out if you qualify.
