About the 11-99 Foundation
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) 11-99 Foundation was established in 1982 by philanthropist, Bob Weinberg, to provide emergency benefits and assistance to CHP employees and their families and scholarships to their children.
“11-99” is the radio code used by CHP officers and dispatchers, meaning “officer needs assistance”.
Since its inception, the 11-99 Foundation has provided nearly $40 million in support to CHP families, including more than $32 million in vocational and academic scholarships to dependents of CHP employees. This has been made possible by the generosity of many individual donors and volunteers and by institutional grant funding. The commonality among supporters of the 11-99 Foundation is a great respect for law enforcement and a recognition of the dangers, demands and difficulties CHP employees face on a daily basis.
Donations made to the 11-99 Foundation directly help provide financial assistance to CHP families. To learn more about our programs and 11-99 beneficiaries, read the stories we shared in our 2019 Annual Report. Please help us continue our most important mission to assist the heroes of the California Highway Patrol!
“The CHP 11-99 Foundation’s impact has been far reaching beyond my dreams of a decade ago. I see the Foundation’s creation and growth as one of my principal successes in life.”Bob Weinberg (1925-1992) Founder, CHP 11-99 Foundation
