CAPTION: Humboldt Broncos president says a committee will determine how the money raised in a GoFundMe campaign will be distributed to the survivors and families of those killed in the April 6 bus crash. (May 17, 2018) SOUNDBITE: Kevin Garinger, Broncos president SOUNDBITE: Scott Thomas, father of late player Evan Thomas PLACELINE: Regina CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Money raised in a GoFundMe campaign after the Humboldt Broncos bus crash will go directly to survivors and families of those killed, but a fee of nearly $500,000 is being deducted by the online fundraising site from just over $15 million in donations. Broncos president Kevin Garinger says Saskatchewan has legislation to deal with the administration of funds raised through a public appeal. That process has started and a Court of Queen's Bench justice is to be appointed to oversee it. "The GoFundMe campaign raised $15.175 million, approximately," said Garinger. "After the deduction of fees charged by GoFundMe, the net amount the memorial fund anticipates receiving from the donated monies is ... right around $14.7 million.
