FirefightersThe BackStoppers General Fund

Donations to The BackStoppers help us provide immediate and life-long support.

In 2016, we provided $3 million in support by paying off families’ debt at the time of a line of duty death, providing health insurance and tuition, reimbursing for out-of-pocket medical expenses, and more.  We rely on the generous support of our donors to fund this assistance to fallen heroes’ families.

Your Donation

DonateIt is very important to us to maximize the assistance we’re able to provide.  We have a small staff of five employees.  The BackStoppers Board members are not compensated.  In 2016, 90% of our budget was spent on the assistance we provide, and 10% was spent on administrative expenses.  We are committed to the families we support and the donors who make our assistance possible.

Your donation helps families who have lost a loved one.  Each contribution helps to alleviate the burdens of families affected by tragedy.  We are so very grateful for donations of any amount.
