July 4 Fund

July 4th Highland Park Parade Shooting

The July 4th Highland Park Shooting Response Fund, which the Highland Park Community Foundation established immediately after the mass shooting, was closed on October 7, 2022. On October 31, 2022, 100% of the funds donated, $5.8 million, was distributed to assist families of the victims who were killed, victims who were physically injured, and nonprofit organizations serving the needs of victims and the community following the shooting.

On October 8, 2022, the Highland Park Community Foundation opened a second fund, the July 4th Recovery Fund, to accept donations that will be used to address continuing needs of victims for mental health and other services resulting from the shooting. The Highland Park Community Foundation is administering the Fund and will distribute the donations as grants to organizations that are addressing ongoing needs of victims and community members.
