The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region announced today that it has created two funds in the wake of Monday's Navy Yard massacre that left 12 people and the gunman dead.
The first fund, The Navy Yard Relief Fund, will support victims' families and those injured in the attack, while the second, The Safer Communities Fund, will more broadly offer support to nonprofit organizations that offer mental health services and reduce gun violence in the region.
The Community Foundation established a similar fund after the September 11, 2001 attacks, raising $25 million for those affected by the incident at the Pentagon.
In a statement, Community Foundation President Terri Lee Freeman said, “We believe that as a community, we have the power and responsibility to address both the immediacy of the impact of Monday’s tragedy, and make an effort to prevent anything like this from plaguing us in the future.”
