CAHP Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund

The CAHP Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund is dedicated to assisting families of California Highway Patrol officers in the event they die, regardless of cause. (The benefit is higher for those killed in the line of duty.) The CAHP takes pride in its history of immediate action in dispersing this benefit as soon as notification of the death is made to staff. This is most beneficial to survivors in assisting with the cost of the funeral. In the event of a death there is a potential benefit from the Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund of $2,400.

CAHP Cares
Supporting our CAHP family in times of need

As happens within any large organization, sometimes one of our members has to face a personal challenge as a result of a crisis or significant event, which can be overwhelming. The “CAHP Cares” fund was established as a way to allow members from the CAHP family to lend a helping hand to a brother or sister who puts on the CHP uniform and does their best to make this a better place for all people of California, but now needs financial assistance getting through a challenging situation of their own.

CAHP Foundation Scholarships

One of the goals of the CAHP Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the financially-dependent, college-age children of a qualified California Highway Patrol officer and, specific to the one of the scholarships, the financially-dependent, college-age children of any active, retired or deceased California peace officer. By making these grants available, the Foundation strives to encourage college-age law enforcement dependents to pursue academic programs at post-secondary educational institutions.
