The Associated General Contractors of America's (AGC) Education & Research Foundation has established a 'Terrorist Victims Fund' to assist the children of those killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States. The purpose of the fund is to help offset educational expenses incurred by the loss of income from a family member who perished in the September 11 tragedies. Disbursements of the fund will give preference to children of craft and management employees of construction firms.

In addition to the Terrorist Victims Fund, AGC members are on site in both locations (the World Trade Center and the Pentagon) assisting in search and recovery and clean up operations. AGC chapters in New Jersey and New York are also assisting in a variety of ways, including donating equipment, supplies and manpower.

Donations to the Terrorist Victims Fund can be made directly to the AGC Education & Research Foundation (501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization) Attn: Terrorist Victims Fund, 333 John Carlyle Street, Suite 200, Alexandria, VA 22314, or call Shannon Knutti at (703) 837-5432.
