One Fund to distribute nearly $61 million to victims

Criteria set for how to give money raised in 2 months

Nearly $61 million raised by The One Fund Boston will be distributed to 232 individuals and families starting Sunday, marking the end of a crash campaign to raise money quickly to help victims of the Marathon bombings.

The total — which far exceeded the expectations of the fund’s administrators — will allow them to write larger checks on average than the aid provided to relatives of those killed in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, they said. Those whose relatives died and those who suffered the most grievous injuries as a result of the terror in Boston will each receive nearly $2.2 million.
