On April 15, 2021, the Indianapolis community and the FedEx family experienced an act of senseless violence that resulted in a devastating tragedy.

We are mourning the deaths of these eight community members and FedEx employees:

Matthew R. Alexander, 32 years old
Samaria Blackwell, 19 years old
Amarjeet Johal, 66 years old
Jasvinder Kaur, 50 years old
Amarjit Sekhon, 48 years old
Jaswinder Singh, 68 years old
Karli Smith, 19 years old
John Weisert, 74 years old

In addition, four individuals sustained injuries during the attack.

Many have asked how to help. The National Compassion Fund has established the Indianapolis 4/15 Survivors Fund for donations to provide direct financial assistance to the survivors of the deceased and those affected by this tragedy. The priority is to give the victims’ families the long-term help and support they’ll need in the years ahead.

Donations made to this fundraiser and the GoFundMe Indianapolis April 15th Survivors, Sikh FedEx Victims Memorial, and Indianapolis FedEx Shooting Victims Funds will be combined and distributed based on the recommendations of a local Steering Committee. The Steering Committee will be made up of community members who will make decisions regarding the application and distribution process. There will be opportunity for public comments and the process will be transparent from start to finish. The National Compassion Fund will work closely with the Steering Committee and administer the distribution of all donations collected.

The Indianapolis 4/15 Survivors Fund is managed by the National Compassion Fund, a program of the National Center for Victims of Crime. One hundred percent (100%) of the funds raised will go to the families and those affected by the tragedy.

The outpouring of support and requests to help across the community has been overwhelming. Thank you for honoring our the victims, survivors, and their families.
