Help Us Win $20,000 From Chase Community Giving!

Area residents can make a significant impact in support of local wildlife and conservation efforts using Facebook Sept. 6-19.

The public can help two local nonprofit organizations, the Carolina Raptor Center and Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC), win $20,000 by casting their Vote for the Planet using social media! You can vote for CLC right now here: https://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving/app_162065369655?app_data=ein|58-1969605

The Carolina Raptor Center and CLC are partnering to participate in a national giving program via Facebook through the Chase Community Giving Program from Sept. 6-19 to raise funds to protect wildlife and their habitats across the region. Funds raised during Vote for the Plant will help support and enhance each nonprofit’s wildlife habitat initiatives and sustainability goals.

Residents throughout our region can help support the Carolina Raptor Center’s and CLC’s success by voting and bringing these dollars to our local communities. If you are a Chase customer, you can vote through your online banking platform – all customers get two votes. Facebook fans can go to the Chase Community Giving page, http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/, to vote twice.

Through the use of social media, the Chase Community Giving program has already given more than $15 million toward charities nationwide. The popular program is being continued to give hundreds of additional charities with operating budgets under $1 million, like CLC and the Carolina Raptor Center, the opportunity to win grants to further their missions. The top eligible charity receives $250,000 and the remaining 99 top charities are eligible to earn $25,000 through $100,000 awards. More than $3 million will be distributed to top vote getters.

How The Community Can Help – With the support of community donors, volunteers, fans and local residents, CLC and The Carolina Raptor Center have the opportunity to get much needed resources to implement projects to educate, protect and save many birds and their natural habitats.
