Your vote counts and can help put us over the top
If you can give Mount Washington Observatory just 30 seconds of your valuable time you can help us secure a grant from the Chase Community Giving Program. Here’s how this program works: Chase has five million dollars they want to give as grants to 196 non-profit organizations that serve their communities in a number of different categories from Education, Animals & Environment, Health, The Arts, Military & Veterans and several more. The rules are simple: The non-profit that gets the most votes by Wednesday September 19th will receive a $250,000 grant – The next ten highest vote getters will receive a $100,000 grant – The next thirty-five vote getters will receive a $50,000 grant – The next fifty vote getters will receive a $20,000 grant and finally the last 100 vote getters will receive a $10,000 grant.
So why doesn’t Chase just pick 196 non-profits to give the grants to? Well that’s simple – They want to know that the non-profits receiving the grants are valued by their communities and what’s the best way to for Chase to know which non-profits are valued most by their respective communities? It’s by your vote – It’s by you taking 30 seconds to click here and placing a vote for Mount Washington Observatory, please be patiant as it may take a minute for the page to come up. We know you value us because we have over 4000 members that support us financially, nearly 19,000 Facebook fans and our Web site is the most visited Web site in the North Conway area. The challenge here is we need everyone to vote because we’re competing with non-profits in very large metropolitan areas like New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago to name just a few. If everyone that reads this takes just 30 seconds to vote you can help let the fine folks at the Chase Community Giving Program know that Mount Washington Observatory is an important member of the community and that we may be from a small community but that community has a big voice.
So where do we stand right now? Well we’re in sixty-first place with 1771 votes which makes us eligible for a $20,000 grant – You may ask what do we need to do to move up, well if every member cast their vote for us right now that would put us in the middle of the $50,000 pack and if all of our Facebook followers cast a vote for us we’d be in the middle of the pack eligible for a $100,000 grant which would be like getting over 1400 new family memberships so please take just a few seconds to cast your vote for a worthy cause.
