Sutherland Springs FBC Victims Fund


We have spoke with the attorney and the H-E-B Spirit of Giving Fund. We will be working in partnership with the H-E-B Spirit of Giving Fund for the disbursement of the funds. We are writing the first checks tonight. Those of you looking donating we would like to forward you to the HEB Sutherland Springs Victims Fundraiser here:

Once the funds have been transferred we will update you on how your generous donations will help the victims in Sutherland Springs.

Please direct all inquires to the H-E-B Spirit of Giving Fund as they will be servicing with our approval the distribution process and methods.

On behalf of Hope Heroes NFP we thank you for all of your kind donations and look forward to your continued support!

We have started this fundraiser to assist the First Baptist Church (FBC) of Sutherland Springs, Texas through their time of difficulty.  We wanted to enable people like yourself to make donations on behalf of the victims. While the FBC could focus on assisting law enforcement and the victims immediate needs.

As an existing disaster recovery organization, Hope Heroes NFP is handling these funds (including funds collected from our website and other sources). Through a partnership with the FBC we will create a distribution plan for these funds to be fairly distributed to the victims and their families. We at Hope Heroes NFP want to insure the victims of this brutal tragedy receive a fair and just distribution the funds collected by Hope Heroes NFP.  If you would like to learn more about Hope Heroes NFP and our projects please see our website and
