We are families of over two decades of previous mass shootings from across this country. One of our family members survived the Vegas mass shooting and was a teacher and substitute teacher at Christian schools. She urged us to create this GoFundMe to help the families of the deceased and wounded at the Covenant School in Nashville. We, at VictimsFirst, agreed. All donations are tax deductible.
Our hearts are breaking for the victims and survivors of the mass
shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville where 3 children and 3 adults were murdered and many others wounded.
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 to make sure that 100% of what is collected goes DIRECTLY to the victim base so the victims’ families and those wounded/injured are protected from fraud and exploitation. You can read more about what we
do and who we are at www.victimsfirst.org.
We do this because our own families have been re-victimized in the
past by non-profits that collect funds for themselves after a mass
shooting saying they will “support” the families, which is usually the
legal verbiage used when donations do not go directly to
Depending on how the Covenant school decides to proceed, VictimsFirst will either
join forces with them, with the National Compassion Fund, or
distribute directly ourselves. We will guarantee that your financial gifts
will go Directly to the victim base. We are here for them.
Thank you for your compassion and kindness. All donations are kept in a separate bank account specifically for the victims of the Covenant School. VictimsFirst's EIN is 32-0656956.
