Coalition of Local Charities Need Local Support to win $25,000 From Chase Community Giving.

A group of local non-profit organizations is working together to win a series of $25,000 donations from the Chase Community Giving Program. Chase is running the giving program on the Facebook social networking platform. Chase has already donated over $15 million dollars toward charities nationwide, including $25,000 to Spartanburg Charter School during its Spring Program. The fall program benefits smaller non-profit groups (those with budgets under one million dollars per year).

The Chase Community giving program is designed as a contest. The top 100 charities receiving the most votes on Facebook will receive between $25,000 and $250,000 depending on their final ranking. Each voter participating in the contest receives ten votes (only one vote per organization is allowed). To date, six local charities have decided to pool their efforts in an effort to win at least $150,000 in total grant money. These charities include the Spartanburg Interfaith Hospitality Network (SPHIN), The Carpenter’s Table Food Pantry, The Haven Homeless Shelter, The Spartanburg County Historical Association, The Hub-City Farmers’ Market, Hatcher Garden and Woodland Preserve and Palmetto Hearts.
