Groups combine fundraising efforts for Orlando nightclub shooting victims

ORLANDO — Several groups that have been working to help victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting in recent weeks are combining their fundraising efforts.

Equality Florida, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida and the National Compassion Fund announced Thursday that they will partner with OneOrlando to ensure all funds collected for victims are disbursed in a unified process that will expedite funds, ensure transparency and safeguard against fraud.

The organizations have raised over $17 million to assist the families of the 49 killed, the 53 who were shot and the hundreds also targeted June 12 at the Pulse night club.

Donations are still being accepted at OneOrlando.org.
