do not water overhead. Full sun. mulch to avoid dirt splashing on
leaves. In continuously rainy weather, give up. with chard, I have
some experience that suggests (it could be myth) that it resists
fungus better when the pH is of its liking (about 7). OTOH, I never
had fungus on spinach, which is 6 feet away from chard, so you might
be in a worse situation than I am. i am sure that there is also a
vinegary or soapy concoction that could help.

most nurseries carry it in their "organic" or "natural" section. it's the
bestest solution against mold, fungi (funguy?), and powdery mildew.
