Help Buddhist Global Relief earn a grant from Chase Community Giving

Buddhist Global Relief is one of the nominees for “favorite charity” in Chase’s Community Giving Program. Through September 19, Facebook users and Chase customers can vote for their favorite charities, and if BGR is one of the 196 finalists, they’ll split $5 million in grants with the other charities.

Voting is easy — Facebook users can click here. You’ll get two standard votes, one of which can go to BGR and one that can go to another charity. If you share the Chase Community Giving program with your friends on Facebook, you’ll get one extra vote, which can go to BGR. If you’re a Chase customer, you have two additional votes, which you can cast by logging in with your Chase account here. More detailed instructions about voting are available here.

Founded by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, BGR aims to combat chronic hunger, malnutrition, and poverty around the world by raising funds for food relief and helping communities develop better methods of food production. In October, BGR is hosting a series of fundraising walks around the United States — click here for dates and locations.
