Citizen's across the United States have not forgotten the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy as donations approach $60,000,000!!

Victim Relief Fund

The One Fund established a Victim Relief Fund to provide financial assistance directly to the individuals who were most seriously injured and to the families of those who were killed.  To facilitate the distribution of these funds, Attorney Kenneth Feinberg agreed to serve on a volunteer basis as the administrator of the Victim Relief Fund of One Fund Boston.  Mr. Feinberg is considered the world’s foremost expert on victim compensation.  Distributions will be made to victims and families on July 1, 2013.  One hundred percent of the donations received prior to June 27, 2013, will be apportioned among victims and families through the Victim Relief Fund.  In order to be part of the July 1 distributions from the Victim Relief Fund, donations must be received prior to June 27, 2013.
Ongoing Family Support
In addition to distributions from the Victim Relief Fund, One Fund Boston will continue to provide support to meet the ongoing needs of the victims and families, and the broader community, after June 30, 2013.  Plans for the future of the One Fund Boston are currently being developed by the Board and the City of Boston, in consultation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the victims and the community.  The One Fund Boston will serve as a centralized resource for victims and families to provide long-term support.
Important Note to Victims:  June 15, 2013 is the deadline to submit your claim to the Fund Administrator to be considered for financial assistance from the Victim Relief Fund.  If you have not yet filed your claim and need assistance, please call the Fund Administrator at 866-298-2951.
