Since our official launch in April of 2017, we’ve supported numerous families, giving away over $100,000 in support since our first year.
The Foundation is committed to working directly with impacted families
to pass on the love and support
that Christina’s family received when faced with the shock of losing their precious daughter.
Goal 1: Provide aid to families of gun violence victims so that they can focus their energy on rebuilding their lives.
Goal 2: Build a community of support for breast cancer patients and their families, the way Christina supported her mother, Tina Grimmie
While the numbers alone are staggering, they don’t take into account the families and loved ones also impacted. Every day, millions of families across the U.S. struggle to stay strong in the face of gun violence and breast cancer.

Our vision is that through the Christina Grimmie Foundation, people will be able to experience the same type of love and support we felt when we were faced with the shock of losing our precious daughter. We hope to keep things as uncomplicated as possible by giving money directly to the families in need, rather than having middlemen slow down the process when help is needed the most.
“The Foundation helped relieve some of the financial burden. The fact that the Grimmies have been through this as well helps a lot, to relate to the grieving and the uncertainty of anything.”
“After a tragedy like this, grief is just so overwhelming. It’s really hard to even worry about things that seem so minuscule, but are so important like paying bills, eating regularly and getting sleep.”
I had no idea how I was going to pay these medical bills from my cancer treatment. The foundation helped me when a I needed it most.”
