The National Compassion Fund (NCF) provides a single, trusted way for the public to donate directly to victims of a mass crime, such as a shooting or terrorist attack. It has been developed by the National Center for Victims of Crime in partnership with victims and family members from past mass casualty crimes, including those from Sandy Hook, Aurora, Virginia Tech, Oak Creek Temple, NIU, Columbine, and 9/11.
The National Compassion Fund (The Fund) serves donors by honoring their intent and crime victims by distributing donations directly to them, in a fair and transparent way. Many funds that raise money in the name of crime victims are not under any legal obligation to give that money to the victims or their families. They may collect excessive administrative fees or conceal the amount donated or how it’s distributed. Others are outright scams. The National Compassion Fund was set up to address this lack of transparency and accountability. It honors the wishes of the donor, and serves the direct needs of victims.
The National Compassion Fund can also, if necessary, collect donations for multiple mass tragedies at the same time. Donors can designate which events to donate to, and those funds will be kept separately.
The Fund is a program of the National Center for Victims of Crime, a registered 501(c)(3) charity, and donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
