Benefit Recipients

There is no way we can ever repay the fallen heroes who have given their lives while defending our personal safety, but as Minnesota 100 Club members we can help lessen the burden by providing immediate funds and the support of knowing someone truly cares about them and what they are going through. We are honored to have given out $587,000 to families or persons from around the state since 1972. During those years we have been able to raise the benefit pay-out amount from $1,000 to $10,000 per family.
