Here's how to donate to help victims of the Las Vegas shooting

At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 were injured Sunday night in Las Vegas in the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

A gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, aiming into a tightly packed crowd across the Las Vegas Strip at the Route 91 Harvest festival, where Jason Aldean was onstage.

Steve Sisolak, the Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas, has set up a verified GoFundMe donation page to help victims of the shooting.

Sisolak donated the first $10,000 and initially set the goal at $500,000. Within the first three hours, over $600,000 was raised, with donations from more than 2,300 people and counting. The campaign goal has been increased to $1 million.

The verified fund will be used to "assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting," according to the page. The minimum donation to the campaign is $5.

GoFundMe is a crowdfunding website used by individuals and organizations to raise money for any number of causes. Sisolak's campaign is verified, but not all GoFundMe campaigns are.

While GoFundMe has a 5% to 8% transaction fee that can eat into a portion of the donations, the site has essentially waived the fee during past tragedies. In the aftermath of the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016, the site donated $100,000 to a fund for victims. 

You can also donate money to the National Compassion Fund here, which will donate 100% of funds raised directly to victims.

People in the Las Vegas area can also donate blood to participating hospitals and clinics. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's twitter account is continually updating its page with locations in the Las Vegas area that are accepting blood donations.
