Report: More than $28 million raised for Newtown


HARTFORD — A new report shows more than $28 million has been donated to charities in connection to the deadly 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

Of that $28 million, more than $15 million has been distributed.

The unspent funds were set aside by various organizations for long-term community needs, including mental health services, scholarships and memorials.

The report, compiled by the Office of the Attorney General and the state Department of Consumer Protection, was released on Tuesday. It is based on information from 77 organizations that voluntarily responded to a survey about their charitable fundraising activities.

Attorney General George Jepsen said 96 percent of the organizations asked to complete the survey complied. He said the report documents the generosity while providing transparency about how the money was spent.
