Chatham Solidarity Fund – final stretch!
Your donation to the Chatham Solidarity Fund will be shared directly with families financially impacted by Covid-19 and who don’t qualify for the stimulus check 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 them are out of work or had their work hours reduced.
Here’s an update on our efforts:
~ 602 donors have contributed $198,909 ~ thank you!
~ 197 families have received $900 each
Can you help us so that no family is left behind?
Please give as much as you can, we are grateful for ALL donations!

The Solidarity Fund is being administered by The Hispanic Liaison, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. EIN# 56-1974043
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.)
Unfortunately, we’re no long accepting applications for help.
The application deadline was May 20.
