Since its inception, the 100 Club of Chicago has served 260 families with more than $10 million, of which more than $4 million was devoted to educational assistance for the dependents.

Within 24 hours following the loss of life in the line of duty, the 100 Club of Chicago presents an initial check for $15,000 to cover the family’s immediate financial needs.  Several weeks later, a second meeting is held with the family and the Club will present an additional check to cover a portion of the family’s debts.

The Educational Assistance Program of the 100 Club of Chicago provides financial assistance for dependents for their undergraduate, vocational education and graduate studies.  Currently, there are 20 dependents receiving assistance from the program and there are an additional 67 children who will be eligible for assistance as they reach college age.
