Direct support for the victims and families affected by January, 23rd 2023 Half Moon Bay shooting.
The Coastside Victims Fund has closed for donations.
We have disbursed $254,000 following our fund protocol.
January 23, 2023, is a day that forever changed the San Mateo Coastside community. A mass shooting occurred at Terra Garden in Half Moon Bay, California, and Concord Farms in nearby San Mateo County, California. The shooter killed seven people, critically injured one person, and caused psychological injuries and trauma to the dozens of other persons present and the Coastside community as a whole. In response to this tragedy, Mavericks Community Foundation in partnership with the SMCU Community Fund and with the support of the City of Half Moon Bay set up the COASTSIDE VICTIMS FUND.
Following national and trauma-informed best practices, the Coastside Victims Fund directly supported survivors and victims’ families. No administrative fees were taken from donations and 100% of the money raised went directly to victims. This fund allowed victims and survivors to decide for themselves what they needed to cope with and manage their trauma.
