LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –

Five months after the worst mass shooting in American history, crucial funds will be distributed to victims and families.

The fund collected $31.4 million from over 90,000 donors, according to officials.

Zappos, MGM International, Boyd gaming, Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment and Red Rock Resorts contributed to 40% of funds raised.

Compensation breaks down by severity of injuries and days spent in the hospital:

32 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED 1 DAY: $17,500 77 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED 1-7 DAYS: $52,500 15 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED 8-15 DAYS: $100,000 9 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED 16-23 DAYS: $150,000 14 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED 24+ DAYS: $200,000

A total of 317 outpatient victims will split $2.5 million or about $7,900 each.

Stephen Paddock’s estate is also under review, according to officials. Clark County District Court Judge Gloria Sturman has instructed CPA Larry Bertsch to tally all assets and file a report by the end of the month.

Paddock, the gunman in the 1 October mass shooting, did not leave a will and his mother is the sole beneficiary to his estate. She has waived all interest in the estate and wants all assets and money to go to the victims of the shooting, officials said.

Additional resources including legal aid, mental and behavioral programs, victim and crime programs, are available at the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center and online at: vegasstrongrc.org.
