one-fundThe One Fund Boston announced Tuesday that the charity was distributing more than $18 million in cash to more than 200 survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings.

It was the final distribution made by the One Fund, which has raised $80 million for survivors and their families since it was established in April 2013.



More than 200,000 donors, including corporations and charitable foundations, across all 50 states and more than 60 countries contributed to the fund, according to organizers.

 

Thirty-six survivors generously declined money from this second distribution to allow for more resources to be directed to other survivors and to support the services needed for the invisible injuries such as hearing loss, tinnitus, and mental health, organizers said.




The One Fund also announced that $1.5 million of its funds will go toward the creation of The One Fund Center, which will provide personalized care and support for bombing survivors.
