Fallen Officers Fund
The Utah 1033 Foundation provides immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen police officers. Within 24 hours of a confirmed line-of-duty death, a representative from The Utah 1033 Foundation will visit with the family and dependents of the officer and present a check to them in the amount of $25,000.
Police officers in Utah have death benefits that vary widely from agency to agency. One common thread among them is that these payments are not available to dependents for some time. The 1033 provides support for immediate, unavoidable expenses, such as funeral arrangements and travel, as well as essential daily expenses like mortgages and groceries.
We cannot take away a family’s grief, but our contribution can help, and it makes a significant impact during a very difficult time for a family.
We rely on donations from individuals, corporations and private donors to maintain our programs. If you are interested in supporting this program, or any other projects we provide, please consider donating today.
