In the wake of the mass shooting that occurred in Dayton, OR, Aug. 4, killing nine and wounding 17 others, the DRI Foundation has donated to the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund established by the Dayton Foundation.
The fund allows individuals to make charitable contributions to help the families directly affected by this terrible tragedy.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families of this horrific event,” said Mike Parks, president of the Dayton Foundation. “Many people want to reach out and help our friends, families and neighbors in the aftermath of this incident. Individuals who contribute to the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund can be assured that their donations will be distributed safely and responsibly as we continue to work with local officials in the days ahead.”
The Dayton Foundation, the region’s largest community foundation, has been helping locally and around the world since 1921. It provides services, resources, support and counsel to help individuals achieve their charitable giving goals, assists other nonprofits by funding important initiatives and offering its expertise to help them operate more effectively and helps build a better community by identifying important issues and bringing together the people and organizations who can solve them.
The DRI Foundation is proud to support such non-profit organizations in communities impacted by disasters and to provide crucial assistance.
