Challenge

The Fund was first proposed by victims and families from past mass casualty crimes across the country, including 9/11, Columbine, Va Tech, NIU, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Newtown. After they experienced stressful and prolonged negotiations attempting to collect money donated in their names, they asked the National Center for Victims of Crime to partner with them to develop a new model of giving-one that genuinely serves victims, donors, and the wider public.

Solution

The Compassion Fund is working closely with Equality Florida, the state's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization to combine efforts and ensure fair and transparent distribution of the donations received.

Long-Term Impact

Help support the immediate and long-term complex emotional and physical needs of these victims and their families.
