California Casualty Gives $15,000 to the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation (CPOMF)
San Mateo, CA, March 17, 2022—Beau Brown, California Casualty Management Company Chairman; and Roxanne Dean, Vice President of Account Relations; presented to Wayne Quint, CPOMF Executive Director, a check in the amount of $15,000 for their scholarship program in Sacramento.
To date, California Casualty has donated over $100,000 throughout the years to the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation (CPOMF) to financially support their education scholarship/grant program. The CPOMF Scholarship Program provides educational grants to surviving spouses and children of California peace officers who have died in the line of duty.
CPOMF will be honoring over 28 fallen officer families at their events in May this year. Many of these families will need financial assistance at some point in their lifetime. Oftentimes, a fallen officer will be the primary wage earner for his/her family. The CPOMF Scholarship Program eases the financial burden suddenly placed on the family left behind and assists in creating opportunity for long term success.
The financial contribution was made in support of the ongoing efforts of the CPOMF: to recognize and honor California’s fallen heroes and to provide services, financial assistance, advocacy and support to the surviving families left behind.
“Fallen Hero Families make the greatest sacrifice of losing their spouse, father, or mother to create a safer community to live and work in. CPOMF honors those who fall in the line of duty and their families by providing meaningful scholarships. California Casualty’s Scholarship Grant is one small way to give back to California’s Law Enforcement Families who have suffered such tremendous loss.” – Roxanne Dean, Vice President Account Relations.
The California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation (CPOMF) mission is to organize, coordinate and fund the annual California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony, maintain the memorial monument, subsidize survivor support groups (e.g., COPS & Peer Support groups), and support the families of our fallen heroes through educational grant and financial assistance programs. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable foundation run by a board of volunteers comprised of retired and active peace officers from across California, the CPOMF is solely funded by donations from Corporate Sponsors, individuals and law enforcement associations. California Casualty contributes to the CPOMF Scholarship Fund every year.
“We are thankful for long-term Corporate Sponsors, such as, California Casualty. In fact, we’ll be honoring California Casualty by placing a bronzed name plate on the backside of the Memorial under the Gold Sponsors to recognize their commitment to fallen officers. Without our sponsors and corporate partners, the programs and support provided by the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation would not be possible. California Casualty understands their financial impact allows for CPOMF to provide survivor assistance and scholarships to the family members of California’s Fallen Peace Officers.” – Wayne Quint is the Executive Director of CPOMF.
