The BackStoppers Membership
Memberships fund our ongoing assistance and provide you with an easy way to support and grow The BackStoppers.
The BackStoppers assists the families of fallen first responders by paying off all debt, assuming financial obligations such as mortgage payments, providing health and dental insurance, and helping with the costs of elementary, secondary, and college/vocational education.
Who Can Become a BackStopper?
Membership 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.
