Blue For Life, Inc. is a charitable, tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing all sworn law enforcement officers in the state of Illinois and their immediate family members with financial assistance in the event that any of them become a victim of a serious illness, catastrophic injury and/or death.
We believe that law enforcement officers perform a very difficult, demanding job and a family crisis can make the performance of this job unbearable. Our mission is to alleviate part of this strain by providing financial support when it’s needed most. Our goal is to grow and assist more police families, and to keep working towards our ultimate goal of going national. There is a great need for our unique charity in this country, and it is our hope that we can contribute to more police families that are faced with financial burdens due to the severe illness, serious injury and/or death of a child, spouse or the officer themselves. With the support of our volunteers and through the generosity of law enforcement organizations, corporations, foundations, individuals and families, Blue For Life can make a difference in the lives of those that protect ours. All sworn law enforcement families in the State of Illinois are eligible to receive assistance from Blue For Life.
