Remove a gun from circulation
Your donation of $100 will remove a dangerous gun from circulation. That's one less gun that will be able to kill, injure, or threaten somebody.
Take an assault weapon off the streets
Your donation of $200 is enough to remove a military-style assault weapon off the streets.
Your $500 donation will remove five dangerous guns from circulation - that's enough to arm a small militia.
You will single-handedly remove 10 dangerous guns out of circulation - that's enough to have a transformative impact on our community.Donate

Today, gun violence is an urgent public health and human rights issue in New Haven, and the city has seen dangerous levels of youth gun violence. According to a study conducted by the Community Alliance of Research and Engagement into six low-income neighborhoods of New Haven, 73% of residents have heard gun shots more than once; 19% heard them weekly or more. Roughly 30% report a family member or close friend had been hurt by violence. If, like us, you think these numbers are too high, please help our effort to end gun violence in New Haven.
We have partnered with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids of New Haven, the Yale New Haven Hospital’s Injury & Violence Prevention Program, and Hamden Police Department. The next buyback is scheduled for February 15, 2020 at the Hamden Police Department.
Your donation will go directly towards funding this event, and taking dangerous guns off the street.Donate
