Williamstown Community Chest strengthens community by mobilizing resources for organizations that assist our neighbors in need.

Prudent stewardship

Fundraising Milestones

A generous endowment covers our administrative costs, allowing 100% of the funds raised by the Williamstown Community Chest to go directly to our 17 member agencies. As in years past, any first time donor’s support will be matched through a special gift. With your help, we can reach our goal and help our community thrive.

  • “Your support helps hundreds of women, men and children in our community receive life-saving services to escape and heal from violence, to create new homes and new lives. It provides intensive education to hundreds of Berkshire County children and youth so that we may prevent violence in the future. With your support, we promise you that we will work hard toward a world in which our children and our families may live safely and fearlessly. Thank you!"
