The 200 Club is a nonprofit 501c3 with a president/CEO and administrator. All proceeds generated out of the Club’s efforts goes directly to the families that are served. 100% of all proceeds stay within the 20 counties that are represented by the 200 Club. Our Tax ID Number is 31-1766874.
The purpose of the 200 Club is to help provide for the surviving spouses and dependents of law enforcement officers, firefighters and paramedics who lose their lives in the line of duty. This includes all federal, state, county and local officers, firefighters and paramedics stationed in and working out of 20 counties within the “Coastal Empire”.
 
Funds are raised through individual and corporate memberships, donations and special events.
In 1950 a Detroit businessman asked 100 of his friends and associates to help the family of a slain police officer. Since then 120 such clubs have developed in many cities and they all use the word “hundred” in their name.
After a line of duty death, the 200 Club provides the surviving spouse or family members significant and immediate financial assistance. The 200 Club provides a fully paid college education to the surviving family members, including tuition, room and board, textbooks, and a computer. Every year thereafter, the 200 Club provides meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and red roses on Mother’s Day.


After a line of duty critical injury, the 200 Club provides a onetime financial contribution to the first responder and their family.
Our benefits go to surviving spouses, dependents and even surviving parents if they were actually dependent on the deceased for their support.
No. When a law enforcement officer, firefighter or paramedic dies as a result of a law enforcement or a firefighting function in the line of duty, the 200 Club will respond immediately. The club also responds to certain off-duty deaths and critical injuries of active law enforcement officers and firefighters.
 
Since the 200 Club started operating in 2001, the Club has provided benefits to 44 families of fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters. Total benefits paid out have exceeded $3,800,000.
 
Benefits vary from agency to agency, but most of our counties do not have pension benefits. When tragedy strikes the family needs funds for immediate expenses. Often bank accounts are frozen and other death benefits can be delayed for months.
