Updated 4/16:

First and foremost, the Broncos’ volunteer board of directors would like to express their tremendous love and sincere gratitude to everyone who has generously donated time and money to support our organization and its families, as we navigate through this dark and heart-wrenching time.

I would like to provide you with an update on how the Broncos’ organization plans to manage and disperse the financial support we have received.

Donations are no longer being accepted on this GoFundMe as of Wednesday, April 18th at 11:59PM MST, but the GoFundMe will remain live so we can continue to update everyone on our progress in allocating funds.

The funds donated through the GoFundMe campaign will be transferred to a newly created non-profit corporation known as "Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc." to be allocated for their intended purpose.

An advisory committee is being established to make a recommendation for the allocation of these funds, which will be held in trust until that allocation occurs. Once we have formalized the composition of this committee, we will provide you with an update.

Once donations to the GoFundMe are off, people who still want to help can contact the Broncos here: https://humboldtstrong.info/contact/


Original:


My name is Sylvie Kellington, and I am a resident of Humboldt, Saskatchewan  and have a son that played for the Broncos Bantam A team just this past season. As you know the Humboldt Broncos Junior A team was involved in a serious bus accident where there were 16 fatalities confirmed out of the 29
passengers.

Please help us raise money for the players and families affected. Money will go directly to families to help with any expenses incurred.

Myself and the staff of GoFundMe is now in direct contact with the vice president of the Humboldt Broncos, and plans are underway to move money raised. I'll continue to update you all here as this progresses.

Additionally, WestJet is offering help to Broncos hockey family members who need assistance getting to Saskatoon by plane:  https://bit.ly/2H2oDJT

Thank you so much to everyone for your generosity and words of love and support.

Update from Humboldt Broncos’ President Kevin Garinger:

First and foremost, the Broncos’ volunteer board of directors would like to express their tremendous love and sincere gratitude to everyone who has generously donated time and money to support our organization and its families, as we navigate through this dark and heart-wrenching time.

Today, I would like to provide you with an update on how the Broncos’ organization plans to manage and disperse the financial support we have received.

We’ll accept donations through this GoFundMe until Wednesday, April 18th at 11:59PM MST. While no online donations will be accepted after that, the GoFundMe will remain live so we can continue to update everyone on our progress in allocating funds.

The funds donated through the GoFundMe campaign will be transferred to a newly created non-profit corporation known as "Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc." to be allocated for their intended purpose.

______________

Separately, the Broncos have been humbled, and our spirits buoyed, by the staggering number of individuals and groups wanting to make donations or holding fundraisers to support our organization outside of our GoFundMe, as we deal with this unprecedented crisis.

In order to accommodate these incoming funds, the Humboldt Broncos, together with legal counsel Robertson Stromberg, have launched a non-profit called the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation.

The mission of the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation will be to support Humboldt Broncos’ players, employees, families, and volunteers, as well as first responders and emergency services personnel, teams, athletes, related organizations and communities affected by the crash of the Humboldt Broncos team bus on April 6, 2018, and the aftermath thereof.

Please note that only fundraisers, benefits or initiatives directing proceeds to the HumboldtStrong Community Foundation will be considered as endorsed, sanctioned by or held in conjunction with the Humboldt Broncos organization. The Broncos cannot, and will not, be able to verify the legitimacy of any other event or the disbursal of funds raised by other such events.

Once donations to the GoFundMe are off, people who still want to help can contact the Broncos here: https://humboldtstrong.info/contact/

An update from the Humboldt Broncos:

"As we try to come to grips with our incredible loss, we have been overwhelmed by the donations we have received across Saskatchewan, Canada and from people around the world through GoFundMe - the support and solidarity has truly been awe-inspiring.

We would like to recognize and thank Sylvie for her thoughtfulness and kindness in setting up this GoFundMe on behalf of the Humboldt Broncos.

In the coming weeks, we will make an announcement about the process to distribute the funds - know that we are working around the clock with our advisors to get the funds to our families as quickly as possible. MLT Aikins LLP law firm has graciously agreed to support us pro bono as we bring together the right teams of professionals to help us work through the steps of distributing these funds. We appreciate your patience as this process takes time and thoughtful consideration.

Please continue to check this campaign for information and updates.

Thank you for your generosity and support. #HumboldtStrong"

A quick update for everyone. The Broncos have graciously agreed to manage this GoFundMe from now on since they're the closest to this situation. You'll see their name listed as the campaign organizer soon, and new updates will come from them. This response was very unexpected (well over 100,000 donations), and I'm grateful the world came together to show it cares and am so thankful for the GoFundMe platform and team - just amazing.

The Broncos have been working around the clock with a dedicated team on a plan for fund allocation, and as that progresses, they'll share news here. Money will stay in GoFundMe's system for now which is standard for a campaign of this size. Thank you all for your love and support. - Sylvie
