There has been a great outpouring of support for Charlottesville; and we have received a large number of inquiries on how best to donate and help our community recover. While we do not advocate for a specific fund or cause, the following have been verified by the City of Charlottesville as legitimate donation sites that are actively and directly supporting victims and our community:
- Charlottesville Area Community Foundation
- Cville Wellness Fund
- Heather Heyer Foundation
- National Compassion Fund/Charlottesville
- Virginia State Police Association Emergency Relief Fund - In Memory of Lt./Pilot H. Jay Cullen and Trooper/Pilot Berke Bates
The CFD has received reports of citizens receiving phone calls from people collecting donations for the Fire Department in wake of events on 8/12/17. No City Department will ever seek such donations.
