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. If it
is an in-the-line-of-duty death the benefit from the Widow and
Orphan’s Trust Fund is $10,000. Since its inception in 1929, the
Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund has provided millions of dollars
to the families of deceased members.
Additionally, the CAHP Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund has made
donations to the survivors of allied agency members who have been
killed in the line of duty.
The CAHP Widows and Orphans’ Trust Fund is a nonprofit,
charitable (501(c)(3)) trust and receives donations from private
citizens as well as from corporations.
