The State Police Association of Massachusetts Benevolent Fund was created by the State Police Association of Massachusetts (Association) in 2010. At the time of the Benevolent Fund’s inception in 2010, members of the Association’s Executive Board determined that the time had come for them to set up a Benevolent Fund that would enable them to assist their Troopers, Sergeants, and their families in certain times of need. Today, the Benevolent Fund has expanded its support to first responders, their families, and members of our community that are in need.
The Benevolent Fund relies on the generosity of philanthropic individuals, corporations, and foundations. Since its inception, the Benevolent Fund has received generous donations from local businesses, supporters of the public safety community, and through exciting annual events. Through this generosity the Benevolent Fund has provided resources to numerous first responders and their families throughout the public safety community. This includes support to state and local police officers, firefighters, and various Troopers’ families both inside and beyond Massachusetts’s borders. Additionally, each year the Benevolent Fund provides scholarships to the children and dependents of active Association members and those of members who have been killed in the line of duty.
