    The toxic after-effects from the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center continue to wreak havoc on members of the New York Police Department, even 20 years later. Our members spent years sifting through highly contaminated rubble searching for remains of the departed. Now these intrepid Detectives are paying the ultimate price for their service.

    More than 100 NYPD Detectives have died from the toxic effects of 9/11, and many are gravely ill. The families of these heroes need our help.

    The DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund is a registered 501(c)3 charity that provides financial help to the families of NYPD Detectives who make the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Every member of the DEA makes a solemn vow never to forget our fallen heroes, and forever to support the families who are left behind. In addition to helping our “Line-of-Duty Families” (including traditional “combat” deaths, 9/11-related deaths, and COVID-related deaths), the DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund brings much needed joy to their lives by organizing children’s holiday parties, social outings, school scholarships, and so much more. Please join us in helping bring smiles to the faces of those who have sacrificed so much for the citizens of New York.

    All donations are fully tax deductible.

    Donations by check should be made payable to the DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund. If your check is slated for a specific line-of-duty family, please write it in the memo line. Mail all checks to the DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund – 26 Thomas Street, New York, NY 10007.
