The Barstool Fund was created last month by Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy when he became frustrated with the wanton destruction of small businesses across the nation and the lack of support they have gotten from the local, state, and federal governments.

In only a month, the sports blog chief had raised more than $16 million to help small businesses stay in business during the multiple waves of lockdowns.

Portnoy has already started distributing some of the funds. On Dec. 22, they made a donation to Mama Mia restaurant in New York City.

On January five, the fund reached out to help Kabooz’s Bar & Grill in the Big Apple.

Now, just over a month in, the Barstool Fund is up to $18 million in donations.
