How to support the victims of the Boulder shooting

Our hearts are broken for our neighbors in Boulder. Below, you’ll find assistance funds for the victims of the King Soopers shooting. By securely donating, you can support the immediate and long-term needs of those affected by Monday’s tragedy.

We’ve also included planned vigils in the area if you wish to mourn alongside the Boulder community. We encourage you to keep Boulder in your hearts and minds in the weeks to come.

Monetary Donations

+ The Colorado Healing Fund provides a secure way to donate to victims of these tragedies. They work with victim service partners to identify victim needs and fill the gaps in financial resources.

+ Donate to the Boulder County Injured & Fallen Officer Fund to extend support to the family of law enforcement members who are seriously injured or killed in the line-of-duty, including Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley, who lost his life on Monday, leaving behind his wife and seven children.

+ Community Foundation Boulder County has established a fund to support the victims, their families, and the Boulder community in dealing with and processing Monday’s events. The Boulder County Crisis Fund will support the needs of those directly affected and the needs of the Boulder community to heal from this.

+ The Elevations Foundation/Elevations Credit Union Victims’ Assistance Fund is run by Elevations Credit Union. Until April 6, the foundation and the credit union are matching donations to the fund up to $100,000 each, for a total of $200,000. 100% of the proceeds will go to support victims and their families.

Boulder Vigils

+ The Boulder Strong Candlelight Vigil will be held at 6:30 PM tonight, March 25th, at Fairview High School. Led by Moms Demand Action, the vigil seeks to remember the 10 lives that were lost on March 22nd. Social distancing and masks are required; drivers are asked to remain in their car.

Many vigils were held on Wednesday, March 24th, and more may be scheduled throughout the coming weeks. The Denver Channel is updating their website as vigils and memorials are added.

May this be a time when we remind one another of the beauty of community and the importance of sharing love and hope with our neighbors.
