Mutual Aid Fund

The Western MA Community Mutual Aid Fund is a volunteer collective providing direct financial support to anyone in Western MA who is struggling financially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

We are out of funds to redistribute and need your support to continue to help our community meet immediate and essential needs. As we get closer to winter and endure ongoing political upheaval along with the pandemic, it is very important that the Mutual Aid Fund remains a resource, but it will take all of us to ensure it stays up and running! We need to raise $15,000 by the end of November and secure $6,000 in new recurring contributions to continue our current levels of support. Please make a contribution today!

Mutual Aid Fund – Temporarily Closed

Fondo de Apoyo Mutuo – Cerrado Temporalmente

(español abajo)

Dear Peoples, 

We are temporarily closing the financial assistance application as we do not have enough funds to meet everyone’s request at this moment. 

On a hopeful note, we have begun a strong fundraising campaign which we are confident will provide us with the ongoing necessary funds to continue providing assistance for people’s basic needs and our commitment to mutual aid during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that people and whole communities are struggling with the consequences of poverty and the lack of a humane government response. Therefore, we are committed to developing relationships with our communities and to the collective struggle for human emancipation.

We ask that you continue to visit this site for periodic updates to our fundraising and to information about when we will reopen the fund. 

In solidarity with each other and people all over the world,

Caridad, Cynthia, Rachel and Mia

Estimada Comunidad,

En manera temporera tenemos que cerrar la solicitud de asistencia financiera porque no tenemos suficientes fondos para cumplir con la solicitud de todas las personas.

Sin embargo, con una nota de esperanza, hemos comenzado con una fuerte campaña para recaudar fondos. Tenemos confianza en que vamos a poder levantar los fondos necesarios para poder seguir proveyendo asistencia para ayudar a las personas con sus necesidades básicas. Sabemos que la gente y comunidades enteras luchan con las consecuencias de la pobreza y de una falta de respuesta humanitaria del gobierno.Por lo tanto, estamos comprometidas con continuar desarrollando nuestras relaciones con el pueblo y con la lucha colectiva para la realización de la emancipación humana. 

Le pedimos que continúe visitando este sitio web de vez en cuando para saber más sobre la campaña de recaudación de fondos y para saber cuando vamos reabrir la solicitud de nuevo.

En solidaridad con el pueblo, 

Caridad, Cynthia, Rachel y Mia
Grupo de Trabajo de Apoyo Mutuo Financiero del Oeste de Massachusetts
