Vote for Seattle Opera

Chase Community Giving is at it again. Earlier this year, Chase created an entirely new approach to corporate philanthropy. The program, Chase Community Giving, let people help decide where Chase donated $5 million. Over 500,000 charities from across the country were involved — and the results were extraordinary.

Two million people raised their hand to get involved. Millions of votes were cast for thousands of local charities. After two rounds of voting, Chase awarded a top donation of $1 million. The next 5 runners-up each received $100,000 and all 100 charities that made it to the second round received $25,000. Thanks to the involvement of real people voting, 100 charities in 31 states are receiving donations.

This summer, Chase Community Giving is doing it again. The power of giving is in your hands, so click below and vote for Seattle Opera (and spread the word while you're at it!)!
