(CBS4) – A number of GoFundMe pages have been set up in the wake of the Highlands Ranch school shooting, but these are officials funds with ties to the school and the Castillo family.
– To support the family of Kendrick Castillo, the student killed in a classroom, an account has been set up with Wells Fargo Bank. You can go into any branch and ask to donate to the Kendrick Castillo Memorial Fund by cash, check or transfer.
– Castillo was an avid member of the school’s robotic team. Robotic teams around the world are also sponsoring a memorial fund.
– The Douglas County School District created a donation website to help STEM School Highlands Ranch students affected by the shooting.
The Colorado Healing Fund (ColoradoHealingFund.org) has also activated after the shooting.
“The Colorado Healing Fund exists to serve as the trusted, statewide organization for the collection of public donations in the aftermath of a mass tragedy,” said Cynthia Coffman, fund chairman and former Colorado attorney general in a prepared statement. “When we created CHF, we hoped never to be needed. But today, after the shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch, we are. Donations from caring Coloradans can be channeled to organizations working directly with victims of this terrible tragedy. If you want to help, we encourage you to give through the Colorado Healing Fund and know your generosity will help victims, survivors, families and the STEM School Highlands Ranch community in the weeks and months ahead.”
