A trust has been set up for Zoey Michelle Belcher.

The Kansas City Chiefs have set up a fund for the daughter of Jovan Belcher, who committed suicide last Saturday after killing his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins. Belcher's daughter, Zoey Michelle Belcher, is now under the care of Belcher's mother.

Here is the press release, with all the details:

HUNT FAMILY, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
ESTABLISH TRUST FOR ZOEY MICHELLE BELCHER

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Chiefs organization is pleased to announce the formation of the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust.

The trust, established through contributions from the Hunt family, as well as Chiefs players, coaches and staff, will be located at UMB in Kansas City. UMB will act as corporate trustee and work in conjunction with Zoey's legal guardian to ensure that the money is used for her benefit.

"Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families and everyone affected by the heartbreaking events of last Saturday," Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. "As we continue to struggle with the emotional pain from the tragedy, the Chiefs family is focused on helping 3-month-old Zoey Michelle Belcher as she faces the challenge of growing up without the support of her parents. Zoey will always be a part of the Chiefs family, and we hope that this trust will help to ensure she has the resources necessary as she grows up."

Anyone wishing to contribute to the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust may do so. Those interested in contributing are encouraged to consult a tax adviser, as donations to the trust are generally not tax deductible.

Contributions may be sent to:

Zoey Belcher Trust
UMB Bank - Attn: Trust Division
P.O. Box 419226
Kansas City, MO 64179

Any checks should be made payable to:

UMB Bank, N.A., Trustee of the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust
