About Us


CT Against Gun Violence Education Fund is a 501c3 (non-profit) organization whose mission is to end gun violence in Connecticut. 

The CAGV Ed Fund educates the public, elected officials, community leaders and the media about the public health crisis of gun violence in Connecticut, and works to create and implement policies and programs to reduce gun violence in all of its forms, including community gun violence, firearm suicide, domestic violence and unintentional shootings. 

CAGV Ed Fund programs raise awareness about actions individuals can take to prevent gun violence in their homes and communities—such as safe storage of firearms and using Connecticut’s Extreme Risk Protection Order to remove firearms from individuals who are at risk of imminent harm to themselves or others. 

Contributions to the CAGV Ed Fund are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

The CAGV Ed Fund works in collaboration with CT Against Gun Violence, Inc., that works to make Connecticut safe from gun violence through legislative advocacy, public education and grassroots engagement.
