Raised by 88,341 people in 4 months
Created October 2, 2017

I'm Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas. We are raising funds to assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. 

Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting​.

EDIT - December 8

For the latest information, please check the “Updates” tab on this page.

The Las Vegas Victims Fund now has 501c3 status, so the Direct Impact Fund will be directing all funds raised to that new non-profit, where the October 1 committee will manage and distribute the funds. Moving forward, please direct all questions to the contact form on their website: https://lasvegasvictimsfund.org/contact/

The new Las Vegas Victims Fund website ( https://lasvegasvictimsfund.org) also has the latest on resources and distribution, and should serve as your main source of information moving forward. Fundraising will remain open on this page at least through January 31, 2018.

Moving forward, if you would like to donate offline, please mail checks made out to “Las Vegas Victims Fund" to:

900 South Pavilion Center Drive Suite 150
Las Vegas NV 89144

All donations previously made to the Nevada State Bank account or by check will be sent by the Direct Impact Fund to the Las Vegas Victims Fund. You will receive a tax receipt by the end of the year for any contribution made to the Nevada State Bank account, mailed to the Green Valley Pkwy address, or made online through this page.

Your support in this time of crisis has been invaluable and comforting. Thank you.

It is incredible to see the ways supporters and donors have stepped up in the wake of 1 October. Donations have come in from all 50 US states, nearly 20,000 from Nevada alone, and donors from more than 80 different countries have contributed. Your messages of support, encouragement, and solidarity have shown us to be a truly global #VegasStrong community. We appreciate it deeply.

Commissioner Sisolak and Sheriff Lombardo have generously donated the domain name “LasVegasVictimsFund.org” to a newly-formed Nevada nonprofit corporation, the Las Vegas Victims Fund, which will oversee a fair, transparent and expeditious public process for the distribution of your gifts to victims of the 1 October event. Donations are still needed, and are still being collected on this site. Checks can also still be made out to "Las Vegas Victims Fund" and mailed to:

Las Vegas Victims Fund
1000 N Green Valley Pkwy, #440-184
Henderson, NV 89074

A revamping of the LasVegasVictimsFund.org site is also underway.

The Las Vegas Victims Fund is a Nevada non-profit corporation which was created to oversee the consolidation and distribution of funds contributed in response to the shootings at the site of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 1, 2017 (1 October). 100% of the funds contributed to and distributed by the LVVF will go directly to the families of the decedents and the victims of 1 October.

The LVVF is overseen by a committee consisting of 16 individuals representing the Las Vegas community. The committee includes representatives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, major donors to the LVVF, Catholic Charities, victims’ advocates, mental health professionals, lawyers, the resort industry and charitable organizations, among others. All officers, directors, committee members and consultants will serve without compensation, and all services necessary for the operation of the LVVF will be contributed free of charge.

The committee is being assisted by The Feinberg Group and the National Compassion Fund to adopt the protocol, pursuant to which claims can be made, prioritized, and processed, and funds can be distributed. The LVVF’s mission is to quickly, efficiently and fairly distribute the funds that have been, and will be, contributed to assist the victims of 1 October.

In the near future, the LVVF Committee will disseminate a Draft Protocol setting forth the proposed rules for the distribution of the funds. The Draft Protocol, once released, will be available at the new www.LasVegasVictimsFund.org site. It will also include the timing and location of Town Hall meetings to discuss and receive comments from all interested parties on the Draft Protocol. The LVVF Committee welcomes your participation and comments.

Our community is grateful for the outpouring of support from folks all across the nation and all around the world. Tens of thousands of people have made their voices heard and are standing up to hate and standing together to support the victims and their families during this difficult time. We want to thank you for your generous contributions.

Later this week, we will make an announcement about the process to distribute the funds. We are working in lockstep with all state and local officials, GoFundMe, the Direct Impact Fund, and the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC) to ensure the funds get distributed directly to the victims and families. We will provide additional information about this process in the coming days.

We want to thank all of you who contributed what you could to support the victims following this heinous attack. We also want to thank MGM, Cosmopolitan, Steve Cloobeck and Diamond Resorts International, Wayne and Kathleen Newton, the Raiders, the NFL Foundation, and GoFundMe for their large contributions to our fund. Our work to help rebuild our community is just beginning and we want to thank you for standing with us during this difficult time.

We have been in touch with GoFundMe since the beginning and they have been a trusted partner from the moment this campaign launched. The support for this campaign has been extraordinary, and donors have had understandable questions about GoFundMe’s fees. GoFundMe has committed significant resources to the management and distribution of these funds in the most ethical, effective, and timely way, and they have also donated $150,000 to directly help victims and their families.

If you’d like to support the victims and their families, we encourage you to contribute to this fund.

If you cannot financially support the victims, here’s some additional information on other ways to help:

Give Blood -
United Blood Services will take donations by appointment only. For more visit: http://www.unitedbloodservices.org/lv/

Physical Donations -
If you would like to donate water, canned goods, or non-perishable items, please visit Three Square and Catholic Charities: https://www.threesquare.org/ or https://www.catholiccharities.com/. We appreciate the outpouring of support, but the substations cannot currently manage the physical donations and we kindly ask you donate them to the organizations to ensure their distribution.

As we have stated, if you are missing a loved one, please call 1-800-536-9488.
