What We Stand For

The Survivors Benefit Fund was formed to assist the families left behind by our fallen heroes. Our mission as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization is to ensure the continual financial support for the families in their time of need – to provide for and guarantee that the fallen loved ones are never to be forgotten.

The Survivors Benefit Fund is not part of the US Department of Justice (DOJ) or Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) but, instead, is a private 501(c)(3) organization that supports the families of DEA agents, employees, and task force officers who gave their lives in the line-of-duty. Neither the DOJ nor DEA approves, endorses, or authorizes the Survivors Benefit Fund, its materials, or its fundraising efforts.
