Support continues to grow for the victims and their families

The El Paso Victims Relief Fund was established to accept monetary donations to support victims and their families affected by the tragedy of Saturday, August 3, 2019. 

The outpouring of support has been extraordinary with more than $1.8 million in donations of gifts large and small received to date from more than 3,400 donors, with additional contributions expected over the coming days and weeks. The fund has been the beneficiary of significant corporation contributions as well as proceeds from local fundraising efforts.

The Paso del Norte Community Foundation is working with the City of El Paso and other funding and community partners to coordinate and provide direct financial assistance to the victims and their families to assist with short, medium and long-term expenses.  The PDN Community Foundation will not assess any administrative fees to ensure that 100% of donations support victims and their families.
