The fund itself is a memorial. It’s not a plaque or a statue or even a building. It’s an ongoing remembrance that provides care and support for those directly affected today, and for the entire community, for the long term.
|Restore||Provide for the immediate needs of the families of the 26 victims, those who were wounded but survived, the 12 children who were first-hand witnesses, and the others affected.|
|Remember||Contribute toward a lasting, meaningful, physical memorial, honoring the lives lost on December 14, 2012, and establish academic scholarships for future generations of Newtown students.|
|Renew||By restoring and remembering, we will move our community ahead, together, starting today and forevermore. We have always been a united Newtown, and we will remain connected through that bond. We refuse to be defined by this tragedy. And we are committed to ensuring there are New Days Ahead.|
The Newtown Memorial Fund was created by Newtowners for Newtown.
It’s about people, not politics.
Newtown Memorial Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) all volunteer non-profit organization.
All donations are tax-deductible and eligible for matching gifts.
Our all-volunteer group is raising money because we know there are going to be financial needs for years to come. We’re here to help the families of the 26 victims, those who were wounded but survived, the twelve kids who witnessed the massacre first-hand, and those affected by the shooting as students/faculty/staff of Sandy Hook Elementary and Newtown-located schools, and first responders from the area who were dispatched to Sandy Hook Elementary.
As of 2017, our primary annual fundraiser will be conducted by organizers of the Sandy Hook 5K. For more information on this respectful tribute, click here.
