Emergency Fund

Money for the Emergency Fund does not come from our general pool of funding, but rather from special events and our annual fund, as well as from honorary and memorial gifts. Designated dollars are distributed through Neighbors in Need and the Greater Washington Community Foundation for use by individuals facing crises related to rent and/or utility payments, prescription medicines or other life supports.
