Questions we are frequently asked
Will a 100 Club decal keep me from getting a ticket?
The decal is an expression of support for the thousands of peace officers and firefighters who put their life on the line daily so we may live in a free society.
How do I join The 100 Club and is my gift tax-deductible?
You may get information by clicking on the Join The 100 Club banner at the top of this page or on many of the other pages in this website. Your gift is tax-deductible. The 100 Club is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Do you sell or trade my personal information?
How do I get 100 Club decals, how long will it take for me to get them, what color are they, and how many will I get with my membership?
We automatically send two (2) decals with each membership donation. It usually takes between two to three weeks for us to process your membership and get the decals back out to you. Each year we change the colors of the decal with the exception of the lifetime membership decal, which is gold. After you become a 100 Club Member you may request replacement decals by calling our office or by sending us an email to the address provided on the Contact Us Page. Decals will be mailed as long as your membership is current.
How long does my membership run? Is it for a calendar year?
Regular Memberships, Business Memberships, and 1st through 3rd Quarterly Life Memberships run for one year. Life and Business Life memberships are for life. Annual Memberships do not run per calendar year. Memberships begin the first day of the month following the date you join, and run for 12 consecutive months.

Is The 100 Club part of a law enforcement agency?
No. The 100 Club is a citizen-based, non-profit organization formed to support our local firefighters and law enforcement officers.
How can I start a 100 Club in my area?

When should I expect my receipt and/or vehicle decals?
The 100 Club gets many calls from our members asking about the timing on acknowledging donations they have made. Because we have a small staff, the majority of our membership and survivor’s fund donations are acknowledged by a Mail House. This method of acknowledging gifts allows The 100 Club to cut the cost of mailing on a daily business and use the funds to further the programs to help Law Enforcement and Firefighters.
Made between the 1st and the 15th of the month are sent to our mail house on the 15th of the month. Members should receive their Membership Cards and vehicle decals within two to three days. If additional automobile decals are requested they should arrive approximately at the same time, but will be sent in a separate envelope. This same procedure is used for Membership Donations made between the 16th and the END OF THE MONTH, with the acknowledgements sent to the mail house on the last day of the month.
SURVIVOR’S FUND DONATIONS
Are divided into the same time frames as the Membership Donations.
ALL OTHER GIFTS
Are processed by The 100 Club Staff and acknowledgements sent within a day or two of processing.
Give a Little for Those Who Gave it All
There is no way we can ever repay the fallen heroes who have given their lives while defending our personal safety but as 100 Club members we can help their dependents go on by paying off their debts and ensuring that their children have the needed funds for a college education.
