Swift made two donations of $50,000 to the GoFundMe page created to provide financial support to Lopez-Galvan’s family.
In a note accompanying the donation, the musician wrote: “Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss.”
The GoFundMe page had set a donation goal of $75,000; Swift’s donation took the amount raised to $174,005 as of the time of publishing.
According to a Variety, a representative for Swift confirmed that the singer herself had made the donations.
The star musician was in Melbourne on Friday where she performed in front of a crowd more than 96,000 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Swift was attendance on Sunday night when the Chiefs won their second consecutive Super Bowl title after beating the San Francisco 49ers in a close game. The singer celebrated with her boyfriend and Chiefs star Travis Kelce after the game, but did not attend the team’s victory parade as she was on tour. After Wednesday’s shooting, Kelce issued a statement on Twitter, saying: “I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today. My heart is with all who came out to celebrate with us and have been affected. KC, you mean the world to me.”
Lopez-Galvan was killed and at least 22 others were injured after multiple shooters opened fire in downtown Kansas City on Wednesday afternoon following the victory parade. Lopez-Galvan was a local DJ and radio host with station KKFI 90.1. Her GoFundMe page says she is “survived by two children and her husband of 22 years.” Police had detained three suspects, but have since released one adult after determining he was not involved. The two other suspects, both juveniles, still remain in police custody. On Thursday, law enforcement officials ruled out any links to “terrorism or violent extremism” and said the shooting appeared to be a “dispute between several people that ended in gunfire.”
