Zimmerman Funds Starting to Slow Down

Funds set up to honor slain Gabrielle Giffords staffer Gabriel Zimmerman are both over the $30,000 mark, although they seem to be leveling off.

The Gabriel Zimmerman Memorial Fund has collected 182 donations collectively worth $32,000, up from $25,000 three weeks ago, says Colleen Bagnell, development director of Child and Family Resources in Tucson, the organization that started the fund.

The fund had reached $25,000 after just three weeks in existence. Zimmerman served on the board of Child and Family Resources while working with Giffords.

Meanwhile, the Gabriel Zimmerman Scholarship Fund has reached about $35,000 in total donations, an increase from $30,000 three weeks ago, says Marcus Frost, assistant director of development for social sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Zimmerman’s alma mater.

The fund needs to reach $50,000 for endowment at the university, a goal fund organizers are trying to reach “as soon as possible,” Frost says. “Time is of the essence, but there is not a deadline.”
