We are making COVID-19 emergency grants to existing community and faith-based organizations that have strong experience supporting local families, particularly those that are disproportionately affected by this global pandemic and its economic consequences, including our frail home-bound senior citizens.
100% of GoFundMe donations received by the Community Chest will be distributed to organizations helping Port Washington residents. This GoFundMe campaign is a Certified Charity Campaign and donations to it are tax deductible. Your receipt will be from FirstGiving (GoFundMe's charity partner). The optional "tip" can be changed to "0". GoFundMe is a free platform and uses the "tip" for costs.
