Mass League Recommends Fund For Boston Victims
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (4/25/13)--The Massachusetts Credit Union League has made a recommendation that credit unions wanting to help victims of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings give to a particular charity--The One Fund-Boston.

"This effort is well-organized, totally focused on the victims of the bombing, and has tremendous oversight and accountability," said the league's website Wednesday (E-Weekly  April 24).

"With their characteristic generosity and concern for others, the credit unions of Massachusetts have been quick to react to the suffering that resulted from the bombings that took place at this year's Boston Marathon," the league said. "A number of credit unions have reached out to the league to see if there was a particular charity or fundraising effort that the credit unions of Massachusetts are supporting."

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino announced the formation of The One-Fund-Boston Inc., which is set up to collect online donations. The website onefundboston.org also provides information for those wishing to contribute by check, the league said.

The fund, as of Wednesday afternoon, had raised nearly $23 million, with more than $6.9 million in public donations and more than $16 million in corporate donations.
