Taylor Swift donated $100,000 to the family of the woman who was killed during a Wednesday mass shooting at the celebratory parade for the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win.

The “Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan Memorial” GoFundMe page was set up Thursday afternoon with a goal of raising $75,000 for the victim’s family. Lopez-Galvan, 44, was killed after being struck in her abdomen by a gunshot at the parade. She was a wedding DJ and also co-hosted a radio program in Kansas City, per Variety

Around 1,300 people had already donated when Swift made two $50,000 donations in the early morning hours on Friday. The Grammy Award-winning singer is currently on a tour stop in Australia.

“Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift,” Swift wrote in a note accompanying the donations. Her rep confirmed to the outlet that the donations are real.

“This fund has been set up to benefit the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan,” the GoFundMe page said

“Lisa was celebrating the Chiefs’ Super Bowl Victory parade when senselessly killed. She is survived by two children and her husband of 22 years. She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to so many. We ask that you continue to keep her family in your prayers as we grieve the loss of her life. This fund will help provide vital financial support to her family as they process this unthinkable tragedy. Any amount is appreciated.”

Thanks to Swift’s donations and the resulting attention to the GoFundMe request, the fund was up to just over $197,000 as of Friday morning. 

Multiple people were shot, including eleven children between the ages of 6 and 15, and Lopez-Galvan was killed when gunfire erupted at the parade. Police detained three people following the shooting, and the investigation is ongoing. 


Several parade attendees bravely tackled one of the suspected shooters during the event, holding the man on the ground for about 30 seconds until law enforcement arrived. The names and motives of the suspects have not yet been released.
