The Day of Remembrance Fund at Kern Community Foundation was established to oversee the consolidation and distribution of funds contributed by Kern County residents to support Kern County victims of the shootings at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Once the information is submitted, we will provide individuals with the protocols governing the distribution of resources.
