As you may know, Chase launched an innovative giving program for small and local charities. Through Chase Community Giving, participants are able to vote to determine which small and local nonprofits will receive donations of more than $5 million from Chase’s philanthropy funds this spring.
The spring 2011 round of the Chase Community Giving program is designed to benefit smaller and local charities by being limited to 501(c)3 charities with operating budgets between $1 million and $10 million. The top 100 eligible charities with the most votes receive $25,000 during Round 1. During Round 2 the Top eligible charity receives $500,000 and the remaining 99 top charities earn $20,000 through $400,000 awards. More than $5 million dollars will be distributed to top vote getters. Chase is putting resources where communities throughout the United States need them most, and it is up to us to garner enough votes so that Trees, Water & People can be one of the winning organizations.
You have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference for the future of TWP! This spring’s round begins April 21– now is the time to cast your vote and spread the word about this opportunity to your freinds and family and encourage them to support our cause.
