Will County 100 Club

Donate to the 100 Club of Will County

The mission of the 100 Club of Will County is to provide economic assistance to the families of law enforcement, firefighters and other public safety servants who have lost their lives in the line of duty.  Our organization is able to help our families through the kindness of generous donors and community supporters.  All sworn federal, state, county and local first responders located in Will County are included.

The Will County 100 Club was formed in 1967 by a group of Joliet area businessmen, and since its inception has paid out nearly $500,000 to surviving family members of first responders who have given their lives in service to their communities. 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.

We ask that you consider a donation of any amount to assist with our mission.  Donations can be made by clicking here. 


This email is being transmitted by the Village of Romeoville as a service to the community. It is subject to the terms of service included on the Village's website.
