Chase Community Giving Contest

MWO Friends and Supporters,
Today is a big day for the Observatory. It’s the start of the Chase Community Giving contest, where we are competing with nonprofits from all across the nation for a share of $5,000,000 in grants. Believe it or not, we have a legitimate shot at winning an unrestricted grant of up to $250,000 to support our work in research and education. All we need is your vote!
This is the easiest possible way to support the Observatory! To participate, simply click the ‘Help Us Win’ banner on our website, and then follow the simple instructions. All told, it’s just a couple clicks of the mouse. It’s that easy!
Our goal is 20,000 votes, so we’re casting the net far and wide, promoting this effort on the web, Facebook, email, radio, print, in our museums, everywhere we canâ€¦and your vote will help us reach our goal. To double the promotional impact and double our reach, we’ve partnered with the American Hiking Society, combining our forces to have the widest possible impact. Each participant can cast TWO votes on Facebook and TWO votes on the Chase website (Chase customers only). When you cast your vote for the Observatory, please be sure to do the same for AHS. They’re asking their members and fans to do the same for us.
It all needs to happen by September 19, so click away! And thanks for your support of this great nonprofit institution.
Scot Henley, Executive Director
