BOSTON (CBS) – One Fund organizers announced on Tuesday that they are distributing more than $18 million to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

A total of $18,459,327 will be distributed to more than 200 bombing survivors and the families of the four people who lost their lives as a result of last year’s bombing and the aftermath.

There were 36 victims who declined money from the distribution, which is the second opportunity provided by One Fund Boston.

One Fund representatives said the donations came from more than 200,000 individuals and groups from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.

In addition to the second round of distributions, One Fund Boston also announced Tuesday that it will provide $1.5 million to establish the One Fund Center, to be located at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The center will be run with Massachusetts Eye & Ear and Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in collaboration with the Benson Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicince.

This will be the final distribution made by the One Fund.

According to a spokeswoman, any future revenue will be directed to programs and services and One Fund Boston will transition out of business as it has been known by the end of the year.

As a part of the second distribution, the families of Sean Collier, Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu, and Krystle Campbell will each receive $100,000. Individuals with extremity injury will be given between $150,000 and $1.095 million.

In addition, victims who stayed 12 nights or more in the hospital but did not qualify under extremity injury will receive $75,000, while anyone who stayed fewer than 12 nights in the hospital will be given $25,000.

Individuals who received outpatient treatment will be given $12,500.
