DALLAS (KRLD) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is making a large donation following the El Paso tragedy.

The Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation and the Dallas Cowboys will donate $50,000 to the El Paso Community Foundation Victims' Fund, a collection established to assist families affected by the mass shooting.

The NFL Foundation, of which Cowboys Executive Charlotte Jones Anderson is the Chair, will also donate $50,000.

In a statement, Anderson says, "our organization has long enjoyed a wonderful following from the people of El Paso, and our wish is that so many others in Texas and around the country will be inspired to assist the loved ones who are grieving."

The team and foundation said additional outreach opportunities will be promoted as scheduled for North Texas residents wishing to support the El Paso Community Foundation and the Victims' Fund.

The El Paso Community Foundation has waived all administrative and credit card fees associated with donating to the families. The City of El Paso encourages anyone wishing to make contributions to the victims to visit
