The Benefit Fund’s mission is to provide financial assistance and a network of support and special events for the families of New York City Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Port Authority Police and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. The Benefit Fund gives financial assistance to grieving families immediately after they lose their loved one. Our goal is to raise enough funds to provide meaningful annual distributions to our beneficiaries for the remainder of their lives.
“The Benefit Fund was founded in 1985 by Daniel J. “Rusty” Staub (former New York Mets player). Since its inception, the Benefit Fund has distributed over $126 million to the families of New York City Police Officers, Firefighters, Port Authority Police and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. In 1987, our organization provided 320 families with annual financial assistance and today, our organization has made the same commitment to over 600 families. Our need has certainly grown, but our mission remains pure: NEVER FORGET those that put the safety of others before their own.
