The first group of donations are these. I anticipate being able to donate more, but I won’t have final numbers until all bills are in, and the accountant reconciles. Greyhound Gang (because of your and our sponsors’ generosity) so far has given out $20,000 in donations, split among these deserving 501c3s.
