Aurora Victim Relief Fund Hits $3.7 Million

Money Goes To Nonprofit Organizations Helping Victims Of Theater Shooting

More than $3.7 million has been donated to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund run by the Giving First Foundation.

The money has come from Warner Brothers along with numerous individuals, families, corporations and foundations.

Money given through will help victims, their families and others affected by the tragedy, according to Marla Williams, President and CEO of the Community First Foundation

However, Williams said the money will not go to cutting a check to family members. Instead the money will be given as grants to organizations that are helping the families cope financially and emotionally.

The Aurora Victim Relief Fund was established after 12 people were killed and 58 were injured during a midnight showing of the Warner Brothers' film "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora on July 20.
