The two team up to aid in the support of small charities.
New York (WiredPRNews.com) – JPMorgan Chase is calling on Facebook users to help with deciding how $5 million in funding for charities should be distributed. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the “Chase Community Giving” program is giving users of the popular social networking site the opportunity to vote in support of local charities with small operating budgets, which could receive money for their organization from the program.
Yolanda Cooper, co-founder of Woman’s Worth Enterprises Inc., a Dallas based non-profit organization that provides self-esteem building programs for women and girls, stated to WiredPRNews.com of the opportunity to have her organization listed among those to be voted on by users, “It’s nice to give charitable organizations that go unheard of outside of their communities the chance to be recognized and receive additional support. I’m thankful we are one of those given that opportunity.”
Funding in the amount of $25,000 will go to 100 charities who receive the highest number of user votes by Dec. 11.
