The Orlando community experienced a horrendous act of violence on June 12, 2016, when a gunman attacked individuals at Pulse Nightclub killing dozens during LGBT Pride Month. Help support the immediate and long-term complex emotional and physical needs of these victims and their families.
100% of the funds received through the Compassion Fund are distributed directly to victims. Donations to the National Compassion Fund are held separately from general donations to the National Center for Victims of Crime. The Compassion Fund is working closely with Equality Florida, the state’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization to combine efforts and ensure fair and transparent distribution of the donations received.
