Chase Community Giving Program is back for 2012! As a past winner, WGI has experienced the benefits of participating in Chase Community Giving and we encourage eligible color guards and percussion ensembles to get your nominations submitted!

As in the past, the goal of this year’s program is to reach small and local charities doing great work in the communities they serve. The difference in this year’s program is there will be a nomination period. Chase customers and employees can nominate their favorite charities by visiting from June 12 to July 9. Eligible charities have a 501(c)(3) designation, annual operating expenses of less than $10 million and meet the criteria listed in the Program Rules.

When the nomination period closes, all eligible charities will receive an invitation to participate in the voting portion of the program, which runs from September 6 through September 19. Those that accept their invitation to participate by August 30 will share equally in $2.5 million in grants and move on to the voting round. The rest of the charities will have until September 19 to accept the invitation if they want an opportunity to be one of the 196 eligible charities that receive a share of an additional $5 million in grants at the end of the voting phase. The $5 million in grants will be distributed as follows:
           # of Grants                               Amount
•         One (1):                               $250,000
•         Ten (10):                              $100,000
•         Thirty-five (35):                 $50,000
•         Fifty (50):                             $20,000
•         One hundred (100):        $10,000
