Welcome to the AFP&CC Police Family Survivors Fund. For more than 39 years we have provided programs and services to help families of police officers who have died in the line of duty. Our programs are made possible only through the generosity of thousands of wonderful donors across the country. Today more than 12,380 grieving spouses, children and other family members can access our family support services including emergency financial assistance to help a surviving family pay rent, buy groceries or meet other expenses during the difficult days following the loss of their officer, grants for grief counseling, educational scholarships, birthday and holiday gifts, and more. With statistics showing that an officer is lost an average of every 57 hours in our country, the need to help the families left behind is always growing. We hope you will find it in your heart to support our programs by making a gift today. Thank you for whatever you can do.

Captain Brian C. Smith, (Retired)
