Support

The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region is setting up two special community-wide funds in response to the Navy Yard shooting

From a press release:

The Navy Yard Relief Fund will support the victims’ families and those injured in the attack.

This fund will provide direct support where it is most urgently needed in the short-term to assist our neighbors as they heal. 100% of contributions to the fund will support the victims’ families and those injured.

The Safer Communities Fund will address the long-term, systemic challenge of violence in our region. As a community foundation – and as residents of the region – we believe it is our duty to do all we can to help make our community a more healthy, safe, and stable place to live. Thus, the Safer Communities Fund will support nonprofit organizations that offer mental health services and reduce gun violence in our community.

Visit  www.thecommunityfoundation.org to access these funds.
