All donations to VictimsFirst will be split accordingly:

  • 40% will fund our General Victims Fund, which provides victims of mass casualty crime from across the country with immediate emergency financial assistance up to $2,500.00.

  • 40% will support our endowment, which we started in Fall 2022 to ensure the financial stability of our programs and the longevity of our nonprofit organization. Our ultimate goal for our endowment is $6M. If our goal is not reached by Fall 2027, the total collected will be split equitably into our General Victims Fund and our Administration Fund.

Make checks payable to Victims First, Inc. Be sure to note the specific fund you are donating to in the memo of your check. If not, donations will be divided evenly between all active funds.

Other Victims Funds:

 

VictimsFirst also creates funds in the direct aftermath of a mass shooting on GoFundMe to ensure 100% of all donations go directly to victims in cash payments. The funds will go directly to victims through the National Compassion Fund when available or those GoFundMe donations will be transferred to a separate, designated bank account for that particular random mass shooting. If the National Compassion Fund is not available, VictimsFirst works to ensure that 100% of the funds collected are distributed directly to victims. Funds collected through GoFundMe provide mid-term care to victims of mass casualty crime. Immediate support is provided through our Victims Fund (above). If you are interested in supporting long-term physical and psychological trauma-related care for mass shooting victims, we recommend donating to VTV Care.

Active Funds with the National Compassion Fund:

None at this time.

A Note on Transaction Fees:

When donating through platforms like Donorbox, PayPal, and GoFundMe, there are unavoidable transaction/processing fees. These are charged to process electronic donations using a credit/debit card. Some of these platforms give you the option to pay for these fees separate from your donation. They are typically a small percentage of your donation plus a set fee (i.e. 2.7% + $00.30). If you would like to donate and avoid these transaction/processing fees, you can do so via Zelle or check (see instructions above). Please write in the memo section where you would like your funds directed.    

VictimsFirst never takes a penny out of the money we receive from any platform for our victims' funds. 100% of what we collect for victims goes directly to victims.
