Two online fundraisers have collected a combined total of more than $700,000 as of Friday evening.

One GoFundMe account is dedicated to providing security for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford with any excess money earmarked for “women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.”

The other attracted donations from more than 11,000 individuals for a total of more than $500,000 set to go “directly to the Ford family.”

During Thursday’s testimony, Ford acknowledged that she was aware of “several GoFundMe sites” set up on her behalf.

“I haven’t had a chance to figure out how to manage those because I’ve never had one,” she said.
