A memorial fund was set up on the site for Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan Thursday afternoon. The goal was to raise $75,000 for Lopez-Galvan’s family.

Early on Friday, Swift, who is on tour in Australia, donated $50,000, then eight minutes later donated an additional $50,000.

Taylor had to make the $100,000 in two parts because the site limits donations to $50,000.

Swift added a comment with her donation saying, “Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss,” the singer wrote on the page alongside her dual donations. “With love, Taylor Swift.”

Lopez-Galvan was killed and 22 others were injured Wednesday during the mass shooting.

One of those injured was Lopez-Galvan’s son, Marc, Rolling Stone reported.

“This fund has been set up to benefit the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan,” the GoFundMe page notes. “Lisa was celebrating the Chiefs’ Super Bowl Victory parade when senselessly killed. She is survived by two children and her husband of 22 years. She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to so many. We ask that you continue to keep her family in your prayers as we grieve the loss of her life. This fund will help provide vital financial support to her family as they process this unthinkable tragedy. Any amount is appreciated.”

Swift has been in the spotlight this year not only for her record-setting Eras Tour but for her relationship with the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce.

Swift attended most of the Chiefs’ games this season, including the Super Bowl last weekend. She was not at the parade when the shooting broke out.
