For your consideration, a couple GoFundMe accounts have been created to support the families of the Crew Members aboard Flight 3591.

Atlas Crew

Jump Seater

Thank you.

Exclamation Caution!

Caution, scams are rampant.

Can anyone (who I know) confirm these are valid accounts intended for the victims?

I would prefer to see links from ALPA or company websites.

UALPA shared the Jumpseaters gofundme page to United pilots in an email yesterday, he was waiting on a class date at United.

The fund for the Atlas crew originated on our Union site, created by one of our crewmembers.

Cross posting this from the main thread because it's more pertinent here,

I just wanted to say there was a similar GoFundMe campaign in place for the family of the Kalitta Charters pilot we lost last year, and word from some of those close to him was that the money went where it was intended. Skepticism is certainly healthy in this day and age, but a visible, sponsored fundraising effort there should be a helpful venue for those so inclined
