We are families of over two decades of previous mass shootings from across this country. Our hearts are breaking for the victims and survivors of the mass shooting at the Allen, TX Outlet Mall where 8 people were murdered, 3 are in critical condition, and 4 are stable in area hospitals on May 6, 2023.
We are the same families of previous mass shootings who collected donations for Uvalde, TX school shooting victims and ensured that 100% went directly to them. We will do the same again for our new, unfortunate mass shooting family in Allen.
Our families of previous mass shootings have been re-victimized when nonprofits say they are collecting donations for victims but do not actually give donations directly to victims. VictimsFirst's philosophy is very different. We believe in full transparency, honoring donor intent and providing the victims the opportunity to choose for themselves how to spend your generous financial gifts meant for them.
We, VictimsFirst have started this fund so the victims’ families and those wounded are protected from fraud and exploitation. You can read more about what we do and who we are at www.victimsfirst.org.
VictimsFirst will work with local victim advocates to distribute these funds. We are hoping to collect $150,000.00 so that each person directly impacted by this mass shooting in Allen can receive $10,000.00. If we exceed this amount, we will still divide the final amount collected equitably. If the National Compassion Fund is called upon, we will grant the donations to them—or another trusted organization that creates a centralized victims fund that guarantees 100% will go directly to victims.
We are all volunteers and are managing multiple funds due to the rash of mass shootings. We take no admin fee.
Thank you for your compassion and kindness. All donations will be designated specifically for the victims of the Allen Outlet Mall shooting. VictimsFirst's EIN is 32-0656956.
