GoFundMe makes donation hub for limo crash victims’ families

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s attorney general is working with GoFundMe to ensure all donations related to the limousine crash that killed 20 people go to the intended beneficiaries.

Attorney General Barbara Underwood says Friday the online fundraising site has established a centralized hub for all verified campaigns related to last Saturday’s crash in rural Schoharie (skoh-HAYR’-ee).

Daniel Gordon, GoFundMe’s vice president of trust, policy and communications, says the site is working with all parties to ensure the money goes directly to the surviving family members listed.

As of Friday, the site says more than 6,000 donors have pledged more than $353,000 to 12 campaigns for crash victims’ families. The money is intended for funeral costs, future support and college costs for the victims’ young children in addition to other family expenses.
