Las Vegas Mass Shooting Families & Survivors to Share $31.4 Million From Victims’ Fund

The Las Vegas Victims’ Fund has raised more than $31.4 million that will be divvied up among those injured and the families of those killed during the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1.

The Las Vegas Victims’ Fund is a nonprofit that began as a GoFundMe account after the mass shooting that left 58 people dead and more than 800 injured during Jason Aldean’s performance.

The plan allocated the $31.4 million among 532 claimants in categories identified by the Fund’s committee of victim compensation experts.

The families of each of the 58 people killed will receive $275,000, as will 10 survivors who suffered permanent paralysis or brain damage. Other hospitalized survivors were allocated between $17,500 and $200,000 depending on the severity of their injuries.

More than 90,000 donations were received.

The allocation table is below.
