Dear Friends of the Foundation,
It is with heavy hearts that we recall the tragic events that occurred Friday afternoon in Aurora.
We send our deepest condolences to those who lost a loved one, and recognize that, in times like these, we all hurt as one family, one community.
We offer our sincerest thanks and support to the Aurora Police Department, the Aurora Fire Department, and the first responders who poured in from around the state, working selflessly to restore safety.
When one part of the community suffers, the Community Foundation suffers with them. We will always work to assist Aurora and support the city we love.
To that end, we’ve created the Community Foundation Responds Fund, which will assist first responders and those affected by yesterday’s tragedy.
In addition, the Community Foundation will provide up to $10,000 to the efforts as a match to anyone who donates to the fund.
Even in the midst of grief, may we rally around each other and move forward with strength.
