Chatham Solidarity Fund – still welcoming donations!

A collaborative fund of Chatham nonprofits

In Chatham County, we always step up to help our neighbors. In these challenging times, local families need your generosity and solidarity. Your donation to the Chatham Solidarity Fund will ensure that some of the most vulnerable families can make it through this crisis.  

Hundreds of our Chatham County neighbors will not receive a stimulus checks or unemployment benefits simply because of their immigration status, despite contributing federal, state, social security and other taxes. Their U.S. Citizen children are also being excluded from the stimulus benefits. Many of these families are out of work or had their work hours reduced.

Your donation will be shared directly with individuals and families in need. The amount distributed will depend on how much we are able to raise with your help.

Our goal is to raise $360,000. Can you help?
We’re asking that: 
1,000 people give $120
AND
1,000 people give $240 
Will you be a part of the 2,000 generous people who share
their stimulus check with families in need? 

Please give as much as you can, we are grateful for ALL donations!

Help a vulnerable family in Chatham!  Contribute today and help us spread the word:

WHO WILL YOU BE HELPING? 

Chatham residents financially impacted* by the pandemic AND who don’t qualify for the stimulus checks and/or unemployment benefits.

We recognize that there are many more families in need. Our intention is to ensure that families in Chatham are not left out simply because of their immigration status.

*Financially impacted are people who lost their jobs, had their work hours reduced or are self-employed and not able to exercise their profession (ex: house cleaners, food sales, childcare providers, etc.)

HOW WILL THE FUND WORK? 
  • A committee will review the applications and oversee the distribution of funds.
  • Qualifying individuals and families will receive the money directly. They’ll decide how to spend it.
Unfortunately, we’re no long accepting applications for help. The application deadline was May 20.


The Solidarity Fund is being administered by The Hispanic Liaison, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
