The National Compassion Fund provides a single, trusted way for the public to give directly to victims of mass casualty crimes.
We then work with affected communities to fairly and transparently distribute those funds to the victims.

How It Works
Event occurs and National Compassion Fund is engaged by the community
Donations are collected by the National Compassion Fund in partnership with GoFundMe, or collected by a local organization. A local Steering Committee is formed to determine eligibility and distribution of funds.
Distribution Protocols are drafted by the Steering Committee and opened for public comment.
Distribution Protocols are finalized, donation portals are closed, and the funds are certified.
Applications for victims and survivors are opened.
Applications close and eligible submissions are reviewed, verified, and approved.
100% of collected donations are distributed to approved applicants and beneficiaries.
