200 Club of Monmouth County: Supporting First Responders’ Families

CaptureThere is an important organization that we missed in our year end giving guide, the 200 Club of Monmouth County.

Led by former Monmouth County Clerk M.Claire French, the President, and former Monmouth County Prosecutor John Kaye, the Executive Director, the 200 Club is made up of leaders of business, industry, labor, public service, education and other professions including all of the Chiefs of Police of Monmouth County. Their goal is to provide financial assistance and comfort to families of law enforcement and first responders who are killed or disabled in the line of duty, as well as baccalaureate scholarships for their children.

In 2015, the 200 Club of Monmouth County gave scholarships to 107 children of law enforcement officers and first responders. Additionally, the club contributed generously to the Seidle family; the nine children of Tamara Wilson-Seidle who was killed by her ex-husband, Neptune Township Police Sgt Philip Seidle, in June. Kaye told MMM that the club paid the property taxes on the children’s home and gave them a $12,000 no strings attached check this month.

The club is funded primarily through members dues.  1000 individual members pay $200 per year and corporate sponsors pay more. Kaye intends to increase the membership and the direct giving in 2016.

Individuals can apply for membership online here or print and mail in an application.  Membership applications are approved by the Board of Trustees and dues are billed annually.

Potential corporate or organizational members should contact Kaye directly at [email protected] or 732-492-0014.

Contributions can be mailed to The 200 Club of Monmouth County, P.O. Box 6518, Freehold, NJ 07728
