It’s time to act, West Seattle! Our small businesses need our immediate help to survive the crisis in our community
The WSJA has set up a Junction Small Business Relief Fund, a fundraising campaign to help cover essential monthly expenses like utility bills and payroll taxes of merchants and service providers throughout West Seattle.
NEW! Love your favorite merchants? You can support yours through the Junction Small Business Relief Fund. Here you can support your favorite by donating to one or many businesses. Enter the name of the small business, then pick the dollar amount. 100% of the funds will be distributed directly to the business.
Too many businesses are fighting just to come back after the stay-at-home order. We want each and every one of you to be the reason they can! Support West Seattle. If we all give, we all benefit #igotthisws
We all know what makes West Seattle special. It’s the small-town feel. It’s your favorite deli who knows your favorite ice cream or a boutique who ping you when your favorite item has arrived. Our businesses run on the passion and dedication of individuals like these owners. Without them, all of our lives will change – but most critically, those individuals who work there. To make this relief fund count, each of us can take responsibility for our community.
WSJA is asking if you can make a donation to help support the businesses that make our lives richer and our neighborhood a better place to live. As a show of gratitude, we will invite the entire community to West Seattle Day (date TBD), with special recognition to those who donated to the relief fund, to celebrate our community’s recovery.
Join the People Who Have Already Donated! As of October 20th, the community has donated $70,139 + $29,000 matching gift cards from West Seattle Christian Church + $10,000 matching fund from Verity Credit Union + $722 during Give BIG. Thank you, that’s $109,861!
Q: What happens to the funds once you contribute?
A: The funds are sent directly to that business within a few business days! The business receives a list of the generous folks who have donated.
Thank you to these donors!

Message from Jack Miller Husky Deli
Thank you for your donation, we could not do this without you.
We appreciate you joining us to help support the Junction merchants through this challenging time. Your donation makes a BIG impact in helping us get the merchants back on their feet and supporting them while we all grapple with loss of financial safety nets.
We know – thanks to people like you – this historic period in the history of not only West Seattle, but the city, nation, and world, will be eased with your support. This is far from over, with economic rebound predictions lasting far into 2021. Please consider sharing this fundraiser with friends and family. One email, Facebook or Instagram post, or phone call to others makes all the difference between seeing your favorite business reopen or forever shuttered.
Thank you for helping to deepen our commitment to getting the businesses open and supporting the dreamers who believed in small business from the very beginning. Together, we can change lives and build healthier communities.
