Thank you to our Community Partners for your financial support of Arizona First Responders.
On May 8, 2019 at the Arizona State Capitol, Governor Doug Ducey announced that The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation has issued a grant for up to $3.6M to The 100 Club of Arizona. The funds will help further the organization’s mission of supporting first responders and their families who have experienced trauma and loss in the line of duty.
Specifically, the grant will provide additional funding over a three-year period to the following 100 Club of Arizona programs:
- The Safety Enhancement Stipend – This program allows public safety agencies statewide to apply for financial assistance to purchase equipment and supplies that further the safety of their members.
- Peer 100 – The Peer 100 Program connects first responders with mental health and wellness services, specifically for coping with PTSD and other hazards of the job.
- H.E.R.O.S. Program – When first responders encounter a life-altering situation, such as cancer, a terminal illness or death, The 100 Club of Arizona steps in to offer financial support.
- The grant will also help The 100 Club of Arizona establish The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation Assistance Fund – The money from this program will provide additional and much needed assistance to officers and firefighters who experience a catastrophic injury in the line of duty.
"Our First Responders put their physical and mental health at risk every day. This grant will not only help them heal from catastrophic injuries and illnesses, but will provide additional support for those coping with PTSD and other challenges."
Arizona Financial Credit Union supports the 100 Club of Arizona in so many ways, from their member support from the First Responder co-branded Visa Debit Card, to providing a space for our offices inside their corporate building and so much more!
We are grateful for everything AZFCU does to help us continue to stand behind the men and women who stand behind the badge across our great state.
A special thank you to Valley Toyota Dealers who have generously donated $100,000 every year since 2018 for added Safety Enhancement Stipends to be awarded in Maricopa County.
“It was brought to the attention of the Valley Toyota Dealers board members that there was a need for a wide variety of equipment for first-responders, and that 100 Club works closely with all local first-responder organizations -- it was an easy choice for us to support. We strongly believe in assisting with community efforts whether it be first responders, veterans, homeless, children’s needs and more.”
