Donations tothe One Fund Boston have topped $51 million, as fund administrators review nearly 250 compensation claims for victims of April’s Boston Marathon bombings.
Fund officials said Monday that they had received 247 claims after a flurry of applications were submitted by the June 15 deadline.
Payments from the fund will be distributed July 1, and all donations received before June 27 will support survivors and the families of those killed in the attacks.
Fund officials expect to receive additional claims over the next couple of days, but said they are confident all eligible victims have applied.
“I think we can rest assured at the end of the day we’ll have claims from all the injured,” said Camille Biros, deputy administrator for the fund.
