History

The Chester County Hero Fund was established in early 2001 and is a qualified charity under IRS Section 501(c)(3) making your support tax deductible to the extent  permitted by law.

Its Board of Trustees include representatives from law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical services, Chester County Department of Emergency Services, and private citizens.

Up until its establishment, Chester County was one of a few counties without a financial support vehicle for these special public servants.
