Governor Doug Ducey Announces a $3.6m Grant to The 100 Club Of Arizona.

At a press conference held May 8 at the Arizona State Capitol, Governor Doug Ducey announced that The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation has issued a grant for up to $3.6M to The 100 Club of Arizona. The funds will help further the organization’s mission of supporting first responders and their families who have experienced trauma and loss in the line of duty.

“Our first responders put their physical and mental health at risk every day,” said businessman Bob Parsons. “This grant will not only help them heal from catastrophic injuries and illnesses, but will provide additional support for those coping with PTSD and other challenges.”

Specifically, the grant will provide additional funding over a three-year period to the following 100 Club of Arizona programs:

“The men and women who serve our community each day deserve our respect and support,” said Renee Parsons. “Bob and I are proud to partner with the 100 Club to offer increased safety equipment, mental health services and financial aid to first responders and their families.”

Established in 1986, The 100 Club of Arizona provides much needed support to public safety agencies, their members and families statewide. Today, services have expanded beyond financial assistance to include funding for enhanced safety equipment, confidential mental health services and scholarships.

“This donation from The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation is nothing short of extraordinary,” said Angela Harrolle, CEO and President of The 100 Club. “Their support and generous financial contribution will make a significant difference in the lives of Arizona’s first responders and their families. We are filled with gratitude.”
