HISTORY

It all began in 1953.

A group of five men – consisting of Leopold L. Meyer, Ray R. Elliot, R. H. Abercrombie, William A. “Bill” Smith, and Jim “Silver Dollar” West – realized the need to support the dependents of Houston police officers killed in the line of duty.

So they reached out and motivated 100 people to contribute $100 each toward the mission. Thus, The 100 Club was born.

For nearly 50 years, the organization focused on police officers, but in 2001, The 100 Club expanded to support firefighters. As new counties have been added and new public servants have been supported, the mission has always remained the same. And today, the organization has grown from 100 humble members to more than 30,000 strong.
