The 100 Club of Will County provides for the families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This membership-based organization offers several forms of financial assistance, access to resources and moral support. First Responders include Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s), EMS, and Paramedics. All sworn federal, state, county and local first responders based in Will County are included.
We provide immediate financial assistance to the surviving families and offer scholarships and other financial assistance.
Since 1967, the 100 Hundred Club of Will County has supported families of firefighters, policemen, and emergency responders who's loved one dedicated themselves by duty and service to our community and by making the ultimate sacrifice. While money can never replace the loss of a loved one, funds can be extremely helpful in easing the financial burden associated with the tragic event. Our 501 (c) (3) charity provides economic support to the surviving family members. The Hundred Club of Will County has paid out nearly $500,000 since its inception. Similar clubs operate in the surrounding Chicago metropolitan area and include the 100 Club of Chicago and 100 Club of DuPage County. The 100 Club concept originated in Detroit, Michigan and has spread throughout the United States.
Sadly, in Will County 35 Law Enforcement officers and 19 Firefighters have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Our Fallen Heroes list is still being updated with all of our heroes. We hope to have all of our men and women represented soon.
