We fundraise, create, and maintain trust funds for the surviving families of fallen heroes. 100% of all donations go directly into the trusts, not to overhead. All donations are tax deductible. And we are a registered, regulated, and accountable 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so you can be sure that your donation will actually reach the folks who need help.

Hi, I’m Anthony.  I’m an experienced probate attorney, with over a decade of experience dealing with trusts and estates. And I want to help others.

I decided the most effective way I could help others would be to donate my highest value skills: as an attorney. This would be way more impactful than me starting a food drive or building a school, things that I’ve never done before and would probably be terrible at until I gained some experience.

So I searched and searched for situations where my existing skills could be put to good use for others.  Then I stumbled on several stories of problems with trust funds that were created for the surviving families of slain police officers.

In one case, the family was fighting for control of the trust fund money.  In another case, the families of two officers sued each other, and the city, over how a trust should be divided. In most cases it was clear to me these problems could have been avoided.

I also have great admiration and respect for our Armed Forces, Police Officers, Firefighters, and others who go above and beyond to help their fellow man.  So I’m very grateful for the opportunity to do something for others, particular our heroes who have served us so well.

So I decided to create HeroTrusts.org.  I hope my years of experience as an attorney as a professional trustee will allow me to effectively help others. Thank you.
