How to Help


Donations made to the Fund for Victims of Terror will go directly to those in need. Please, remember to check if your employer matches contributions.

Consider increasing your commitment to the Community Campaign which is the first line of support within our community.

The Federal Order of Police has set up a fund at the Pittsburgh Police Credit Union to help the officers who were injured in the synagogue shooting. It's called the Injured Officers' Fund.
