A local fundraising effort from Technology Underwriting Greater Good (TUGG) has announced an expanded goal, breaking the $150,000 mark and earmarking $100,000 of the funds for One Fund Boston, the relief charity set up by Mayor Tom Menino and Governor Deval Patrick.

Launched Monday night, the grassroots fundraising effort quickly surpassed its original goal of $50,000, thanks to generous donors both locally and around the country, including a number of venture firms that agreed to match donations.

More information is available at TUGG’s website.
