Donate to the
Navy Yard Tragedy Family Support Fund

Tragedy struck close to home on September 16, 2013 when twelve people were killed at the Washington Navy Yard. As a partner to the United States Navy, TAPS was called upon to provide comfort and care to the families profoundly affected that day.

To assist the families following the shooting, TAPS has set up a designated fund that anyone may contribute to called the Navy Yard Tragedy Family Support Fund. All donations made to this fund will be used to provide comfort and care for the families from the shooting, including support programs and casework assistance for unmet needs.

Please note: If you are interested in donating in memory of or a tribute to, please continue to our Navy Yard Tragedy Support Fund Memorial and Tribute Donation form.
