BBB Advice on Donating to Help Victims of Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York Mass Shootings



The emotional toll of the mass shootings at the Uvalde, Texas elementary school and at the Buffalo, New York supermarket will inspire many to make donations to help the impacted families.

Better Business Bureau urges concerned donors to take appropriate steps to avoid questionable appeals that seek to take advantage of this generosity. Don’t assume that everyone using the names and/or photos of victims has received permission from families to do so. Be cautious about appeals that don’t identify the intended use of funds.

See more tragedy-philanthropy advice on the following in our advice on giving after tragedy and at BBB’s Give.org, the website of BBB Wise Giving Alliance.
