The 100 CLUB OF KENDALL COUNTY is organized to engage in all activities necessary, useful, or expedient to encourage, promote, and further augment the safe and effective Law Enforcement, Firefighting, and Emergency Medical services in our primary service area of Kendall County, Texas by supporting first responders, their children, their families, and our community.
Who, What, When?
We are: A complete, qualified 501c non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the welfare of Kendall County first responders and their families.
What we do: We seek out First Responder families in Kendall County whose circumstances are deserving of extra attention, beyond that provided by typical taxpayer support. This can include assistance for the families of fallen heroes, tuition support for the children of First Responder families, mental health seminars, specialized hardware and so on…
What it costs: The 100 Club of Kendall County is run entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers, many of whom are retired First Responders, along with active members of the Sheriff’s Department, the Boerne Police Department, Emergency Medical personnel and the Boerne Fire Department. There are no administrative costs in this organization! That means that every dollar collected is available for the true cost of an expense.
Here are some of the ways your gifts have been put to use in recent times:
We helped furnish two "decompression rooms" at Boerne Police Department; one for the officers and one for the dispatchers. The dispatchers at Boerne Police Department dispatch for the Boerne Police Department, Boerne Fire Department, Fair Oaks Police Department, Kendall County Sheriff’s Office and the volunteer county Fire Department, so they are busy people.
We helped to bring a nationally renowned PTSD speaker (Travis Houze) to Boerne First Responders and provided lunch for the participants.
We brought "Mental Health First Aid" class to local First Responders.
We raised funds to outfit THREE Boerne ISD School Resource Officers with rifles, shields, first aid kits, etc. to be stored on campus.
We assisted Leadership Boerne with fundraising to purchase a thermal imaging camera for the Boerne Fire Department.
And, with your help, the list will go on…
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
There is little doubt that those of us who call Kendall County, Texas "home" are blessed. In addition to a bountiful life and great neighbors, statistics prove that the crime rates of this county are proportionately much lower than the rest of the state, not to mention the country as a whole. A very large portion of the credit for that fact is associated with the everyday presence of our First Responders, including our Police, Sheriff, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service Team members.
While we've been spared the agony of laying to rest any of our First Responder force since 2019, we intend to be fully prepared in the likely event a tragedy reoccurs. This organization will step in and do our best to alleviate and/or mitigate the circumstances that the family of a fallen First Responder will undoubtedly face.
As a donor and a 100 Club Member, each of you is entitled to full accountability for the use of your charitable donation to our organization. We pledge to you full transparency on the use of our funds and assure you that 100% of all collections will be used in the support of our First Responder programs; that is, we have no overhead expense and all our efforts are through volunteers.
Won't you please help us by pledging your donation for our mission of extended support programs for our First Responders? Simply click on the "donate" button below and we'll handle the rest.
President, 100 Club of Kendall County, Texas

OBJECTIVES FOR ACCOMPLISHING OUR MISSION:
Our charter provides this organization with a wide latitude to financially assist our county First Responders in whatever manner members of the Board of Directors agree is appropriate for any given situation. The following objectives provide a general overview for addressing the overall mission of this organization.
Kendall County Line of Duty Death Assistance
Financial Assistance given within 24 hours of a Line of Duty Death - Given with the thanks of a grateful community!
Kendall County Dependent Children Scholarship Fund
Scholarships for the children of fallen First Responders are considered.
Line of Duty Injury Fund
We may provide financial assistance and counseling to seriously injured First Responders who are injured on the job.
First Responder Family Resiliency Program
According to a recent study, the attempted suicide rate for First Responders is more than 10 times the rate of the general population. This phenomenon has been acerbated by recent national social unrest and media criticism of the First Responder base. This organization will do its utmost to contribute to the well-being of all those designated as First Responders and their families. We will endeavor to help implement various programs for pre-emptive counseling through the creative use of mobile apps, paid counselors and other means.
