Rolling Cash Fund

This is an initial effort to establish a rolling community cash fund.  We hope to raise at least $4,000 to provide twenty $200 grants to Lakewood neighbors. We will prioritize applications from neighbors that don’t have access to state/federal support (like stimulus checks and/or unemployment benefits), those who risk losing housing, and senior citizens and families with children. 

Our neighborhood teams are committed to share resources on an ongoing basis with all neighbors who contribute and/or apply for grants. $200 runs out fast, and we want to be in solidarity with each other beyond our mutual aid cash fund. 

Want to support your neighbors?

Are you able to share your resources with those facing impossible financial choices?

Are you a Lakewood neighbor looking for ways to plug in and engage in meaningful action?

Do you live in a different Durham neighborhood? Connect with the mutual aid group in your area on the Durham Mutual Aid website.

Are you facing financial uncertainty?

If you live in Lakewood and are having difficulty covering your bills or rent, apply for a $200 cash grant.

The application requires a valid email account (you can use a friend or family member’s if you don’t have one). If this is a barrier to applying for the fund, call or text us at: (919) 351-9926‬.

Resources and additional support will be available to all who apply.
