COVID-19: PW Residents Need Our Help NOW

So many people are asking how they can help their Port Washington neighbors most in need.  Contributions to the Port Washington  COVID-19 Community Response Fund will allow us to rapidly give out  flexible resources for food needs, housing costs and other expenses related to COVID-19. 

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.

The Community Chest of Port Washington  is a not-for-profit organization established in 1949 to raise funds for distribution to local charities dedicated to improving people's lives. Community Chest funds support these charities' programs in Port Washington, including services for children, seniors, families, and everyone in our community, exemplifying the spirit of The People of Port Helping the People of Port.
