About the Oulson Family Foundation

Alexis Oulson lost her father Chad when he was shot and killed in a movie theater. Alexis was just 22 months old. 

Chad's wife and Alexis's mother, Nicole along with Chad's friends and family created the Oulson Family Foundation to help other children who have gone through similar tragedies due to gun violence. We do not take a stand for or against gun ownership. We are against the massive amount of gun violence that we see every day in our community and country at large.

Our goal is to provide financial support to children who have been directly or indirectly effected by gun violence and crimes involving guns. Please help us on our mission.
