Pulse victims and their families are seeing their OneOrlando Fund donations coming in.

Following the Orlando Pulse massacre which took the lives of 49 and injured 53 others, the fund has distributed $27,410,000, according to the Orlando mayor’s office in a press release.

The money was distributed to 299 claims. Six more claims are being held until the families can decide on how the funds will be distributed.

Over $2 million more will be distributed to the remaining six claims.

There were 333 total timely claims and 15 late claims made for the funds. Thirty-three timely claims were considered ineligible because “individuals were not inside Pulse at the time of the shooting or could not be verified by the FBI,” according to the press release.

Five of the fifteen late claims were eligible.

The OneOrlando Fund has continued to receive donations well past their donation deadline. They will officially halt donations on Jan. 1, 2017.

Currently, they have a remaining balance of $655,000. After the final donation deadline, the board will decide how to distribute the donations.
