By now you’re probably aware that Chase and Facebook are running a big contest this week, which will result in one nonprofit organization winning $1 million, and five runners-up winning $100,000 each. With your help and votes, Idealist made it to the final round. We’re in great company, and we are currently in the top 10!
We could really use this money to continue the work that we do. And we genuinely believe that a vote for us is a vote for the whole nonprofit sector, because all of the other groups who are in the running can use our site and resources to strengthen their programs.
If you add the Chase Giving app to your Facebook profile, you can vote for five organizations. The deadline is Friday. If you don’t have a Facebook profile, this is a great time to create one, and you can do so by visiting facebook.com and following the instructions there.
If Idealist has helped you to connect with the practical dreamer within—whether that meant finding a job, an internship, a volunteer to help your project get off the ground, a graduate degree program, etc.—please consider using one of your votes for us.
