Please click on the above honor chair picture to see an example of an on-location chair build.
Below you will see the Honor Chair request form. Please complete the form and click on submit. This will help us with designing the honor chair. Once submitted, please send a badge and any challenge coins you would like us to inlay into the chair. Two coins are best so that we can display each side. If we are coming to your department to build the chair, just let us know when you have the badge and coins. We do not need them mailed to us for on-location builds.
*Please read important information below.
We try to raise $2,500 per honor chair so that it helps cover material costs all the way through travel expenses for us to build/present the chair. Many departments locate a sponsor to cover the chair. When this is the case, the sponsor will receive a custom made Saving A Hero’s Place Honor Chair Sponsor metal badge. Some choose to fundraise throughout the department. Regardless of whether $2,500 is raised, the honor chair is still completed, with the exception of on-location builds. On-location builds require extended travel costs, etc., therefore we must raise $2,500 prior to being able to build on-location. If you cannot raise the funds, or locate a sponsor, please let us know. If the money cannot be raised, we will still complete the honor chair for your department. We just may not be able to build it on-location. We also request that there be 3-4 people interested in participating in the build before we travel to your department to build on-location. If we are building more than one chair for a single department, sponsorship only increases $500 per chair. If no sponsor is obtained, we will continue to fundraise and the completion date for the chair is based on our current budget. Chairs that are fully funded(sponsored), are normally built and presented much faster due to less budget issues.
The only requirements for an honor chair are (1) It is a line of duty incident. (2) The department is aware and has space for the chair to be placed. At this time, we only build chairs for line of duty deaths, and we only present them to the agency where the hero worked. They are meant to save their place within the department.
Please mail any Badges, coins, etc… to:
Saving A Hero’s Place, Inc.
P.O. Box 700430
San Antonio, Tx 78270
*We appreciate an extra coin and patch for each chair for our collection
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions while filling out chair request form.
We hope building on-location is something your department will consider. Having co-workers and family participate in the building of an honor chair is something they will never forget and makes the chair even more meaningful. We can setup and build the chair over 2 days, then present it to your department on the 3rd day. Once we come up with a design, the family and co-workers will get to work on engraving, painting, sanding, assembly and finishing. This is our preferred method of honor chair building. Please watch video above.
Please complete the form below as accurately as possible to help us with the design of the chair. We want to make sure our design is exactly how you would like the chair. Consider punctuation when filling the out the form.
