The Daunte Wright Sr. Memorial Fund

On April 11th, our 20-year-old son, Daunte Wright Sr., was fatally shot and killed by a Brooklyn Center police officer during a routine traffic stop. Our family is distraught as we struggle to understand why our loved one was taken away from us in such a senseless manner.  

All funds raised through this site will go towards covering funeral and burial expenses, mental health and grief counseling for Daunte's family,  to help the Wright family in their fight for justice, and to provide support for family.  100% of the funds raised on this site will go to the Wright family. NO PART OF THESE FUNDS WILL BE USED TOWARDS LEGAL FEES.  The road to justice is very long, and the Wright family will not let what happened to Daunte be forgotten. The officer(s) who took his life must be held responsible.
