Review for CHP 11-99 Foundation, Fullerton, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past 36 years, the CHP 11-99 Foundation has helped provide emergency benefits to the families of officers killed in the line of duty as well as officers injured while helping to protect the citizens of California.

Along with these vital services, the CHP 11-99 Foundation also provides education scholarships to dependents of all CHP employees, uniformed and non-uniformed.
The CHP 11-99 Foundation is our personal favorite 501(c) 3 Status Non-Profit Organization to donate to because since 1982 they have provided over $34 million in death benefits and scholarships to CHP families in need.

My husband is a Retired Lt. Commander of 31 years in the California Highway Patrol, it was all my husband ever aspired to be but as the years passed--the job changed, it became more dangerous and for families who lose a major bread earner, it can be even more devastating. We have met countless beneficiaries over the years whose lives were positively impacted by the 11-99's endeavors.

They're the most pro-active nonprofit we've ever witnessed in action!

Review for CHP 11-99 Foundation, Fullerton, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 1993 my radiator blew on a dark stretch of freeway in Los Angeles, it was a traumatic situation and out of nowhere a CHP motorcyclist showed up! My car died, going uphill, in the on ramp with a truck barreling down on me and smoke billowing out from under my hood-I couldn’t open my door on the left…and I couldn’t jump out on the right. This man’s actions were heroic and I’m a 100% sure I’m here today because he was there at that exact moment!

In 2001 I met a Lieutenant for the CHP and we married in 2003. We’ve been to a lot of holiday parties, retirement parties, birthday parties, graduations and then some, but it’s the funeral’s you never forget. You can’t go to a funeral and not want to help.

Through my husband’s encouragement and support of the CHP 11-99 I got to meet Rebecca Centner and we’ve been volunteering and donating ever since. There is a history, a culture and a love of family binding the ties within the framework of this nonprofit, unlike any I’ve ever experienced. What a visionary Bob Weinberg was!

The children who lose a parent within a CHP family lose so much and they need a light. The CHP 11-99 Foundation is truly that light! They have honored the giving spirit and dedication of the CHP officers who have served and they set an example for how to pay it forward. The scholarships they provide foster careers in a vast range of fields. The ripple effect of education is priceless as well as the confidences shaped by the opportunity to achieve higher aspirations.

No matter what the need is, the CHP 11-99 Foundation’s devotion to be there when it really counts is remarkable and I can’t think of a nonprofit that does more to make a difference in the lives of the people who make our state highways and communities a safer place than a nonprofit that serves the families of the California Highway Patrol.
