The National Troopers Coalition and Charitable Foundation is a 501 c-(3) charity established in 1980 as a vehicle to provide benefits to the NTC membership and law enforcement community as a whole. Currently the NTC Charitable Foundation provides death benefits to families of fallen Troopers throughout the nation as well as supporting critical support mechanisms such a C.O.P.S. and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The Board of Directors is composed of retired State Troopers from throughout the nation whose goal is to raise funds for the organization and distribute them to where they can best be used. Unfortunately as of late too many death benefits have been provided and we sincerely hope this trend reverses.
