Altrua HealthShare shares in the medical needs for its members everyday. And, as Altrua Ministries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, we also support our local, national and international communities. One of the local organizations we support in Texas is the 100 Club of Central Texas.

What Is the 100 Club?

The 100 Club of Central Texas is the leader in providing financial support to the families of first responders who have been killed or critically injured in the line of duty. One of these support efforts is the DR. JAMES MORITZ ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP. Each year, The 100 Club presents scholarships to active-duty first responders who are continuing their education while serving their communities.
