raised by 2,545 people

$100,000 goal

The Colorado Healing Fund (CHF) has been activated to collect donations to support the victims' families and the survivors of the Club Q shooting in Colorado Springs on November 20. 

CHF was founded in 2018 by a group of victim advocates and community leaders to establish a secure way for the public to donate to support victims of mass tragedy.

CHF supports victim assistance organizations and a variety of providers working on the ground with victims and community members in actively assessing needs and will then provide the monetary assistance and services to mitigate the impacts of the aftermath of these events.  

Following the Boulder King Soopers shooting in 2021, CHF disbursed $3,044,000  to Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (COVA) and $313,973 to the Boulder Strong Recovery Center. $2,441,000 of the $3,044,000 disbursed to COVA was distributed as cash to the 10 families and additional individuals named in the criminal case. $603,000 of the $3,044,000 disbursed to COVA was used to pay for any immediate needs of anyone directly impacted by the BST, including travel for memorial services, rent, moving costs, and medical expenses.

In the immediate aftermath of a violent incident, the focus is on the families of the deceased, those who are injured, and those who are immediately affected as designated by the local victim service agencies including the victim compensation program administrator and the law enforcement victim witness coordinators. During the acute response phase families who have lost loved ones receive financial assistance to cover death-related expenses that are not otherwise paid for by publicly administered victim compensation funds. It is customary for CHF to facilitate payment for air travel, rental vehicles, lodging for out-of-town relatives, and rent for example. Some completely unrestricted funds also may be made available to surviving family members. Injured parties and those immediately affected also are eligible for funds to assist with emergency expenses and care related to their individual conditions. Travel costs may be paid for family members who are integral to a victim’s care, recovery, and support system.

CHF also provides for immediate and long-term needs of victims when circumstances warrant and funds allow.

Donations to this Word of Thanks microgiving campaign will be directed to CHF's Club Q shooting response.
