If anyone is interested, I heard the other day that from September 6, 2012 to September 19, 2012 Chase is holding their annual event in which people can vote online for one of their 2,500 many nominated charities. Chase has $5 million that they will be divided among the top 196 voted charities. People can vote via online if they have a Chase bank account, or if they have a Facebook account.

The official Chase website links:

Also from this website reference, this is how the donations would be given.

This year Chase's Community Giving Program is targeting smaller charities with annual operating expenses less than $10 million. 2,500 charities were invited to move on to the Charity Acceptance and Voting Period ...
The 196 charities receiving the most votes will split $5 million

This is how the grant funds will be distributed:
$250,00 to the charity receiving the most votes;
$100,00 to the next ten runner’s up charity;
$50,000 to the next thirty five runner’s up Charity
$20,000 to the next fifty runner’s up Charities
$10,000 to the next one-hundred runner’s up Charities

Please note that everyone gets at least TWO VOTES. That means you can vote for two charities (see the Chase website for full details and explanations about how to get an extra third vote). I suggest that anyone who wants to vote should look up their own first-choice, personal smaller charities and see if they are listed.

But if you don't have a favorite charity listed, or have an extra vote you are willing to share, I do ask if you will consider voting for a particular charity that I have in mind. Also I do have one particular local NYC charity that I have already voted for and would like to rank as high as possible. If anyone is interested and willing here, it is a grassroots animal welfare organization who is hoping for the $50,000 tertiary runners up group, but will be happy to get anything in the program.

I will post it as a reply to this post, in case anyone is interested and able.

Thank you!
