The NFL Foundation, Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans continue to grieve with the nation and those families directly impacted by the recent tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
The Cowboys and the NFL Foundation will donate a combined $400,000, split between the Robb School Memorial Fund and the Uvalde Strong Fund. The Houston Texans organization announced earlier that it will be matching donations made by its players and contributing a combined $400,000 between the team and its players to the Robb School Memorial Fund. The donations will support the families of the victims, survivors and the Uvalde community as they seek to recover from this senseless tragedy.
The Robb School Memorial Fund is in collaboration with the OneStar Foundation and supported by the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, among other local organizations and officials. The fund has been opened at First State Bank of Uvalde in Uvalde, Texas for the families of Robb Elementary School and 100% of all donations are charitable and will go to the victims and survivors of the incident.
Uvalde Strong Fund, which is being coordinated through the Community Foundation of the Texas Hill Country, is a relief fund established to support Uvalde residents — people, families, and community organizations healing from the tragedy at Robb Elementary School. The NFL Foundation and the Cowboys' support will be directed to community recovery in the areas of mental health and trauma.
