FirefighterThe BackStoppers Membership

Memberships fund our ongoing assistance and provide you with an easy way to support and grow The BackStoppers.

The BackStoppers’ mission is to financially assist the families of first responders who die in the line of duty by paying off all debt, assuming financial obligations such as mortgage payments, taxes, providing health and dental insurance, and helping with the costs of elementary, secondary, and college/vocational education.

Who Can Become a BackStopper?

Join or RenewMembership is open to everyone, whether a civilian or first responder, who shares our mission. The BackStoppers recognizes the tremendous sacrifices that public servants make every day when they go to work. We understand the burdens placed on surviving spouses and children when tragedies occur. We believe our community has an obligation to care for the loved ones of those who have protected us. We accept the responsibility to make that happen, and invite you to join us in our cause.
