Nashville suffered an unthinkable tragedy on Monday, March 27th, 2023. Our community is standing and providing ways to get involved as we push through the grief and subsequently heal together.


Donate to the Caring For Covenant Fund

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has established the Caring for Covenant Fund to manage the donations made in response to this tragedy. All donations made to the Fund, minus credit card fees, will be directed to The Covenant School to support the healing of those affected by this tragedy.

Donate to the family of Mike Hill, Victim of the Covenant Shooting

All money raised via this GoFundMe will be directed in its entirety to Mike’s family to put towards funeral services, and expenses and to further dedicate to causes close to their hearts to facilitate healing in the Covenant and Nashville communities. Mike deserves to be remembered for his selfless act of protecting our children.

Donate to the Covenant Victims Fund 

VictimsFirst have started this fund to make sure that 100% of what is collected goes DIRECTLY to the victim base so the victims’ families and those wounded/injured are protected from fraud and exploitation.

Donate to the Scruggs Family in honor of Hallie

Misty and Shannon, friends of the Scruggs family, set up this GoFundMe on behalf of their beloved Hallie. All donations will be directly deposited to the Scruggs family as they will be added as the direct beneficiaries of the fundraiser.
