The Chrissy Gallaher Victim's Assistance Fund was established in 1992 by friends and family of Chrissy Gallaher, who was the victim of a violent crime. The fund provides financial assistance to victims of violent crime to help minimize complications from the event. The fund also provides grants for statewide organizations that provide information in a supportive manner to victims of violent crime.
Organizations that routinely assist victims of violent crime may apply at any time to establish a small fund held at their agency that can be available for immediate access.
The Foundation will receive and make decisions about grants from the fund throughout the year.
