Burpee Museum has an incredible opportunity and we need your help.
Chase has $5 million to give to community not-for-profits and charities and Burpee Museum has been nominated as one of those not-for-profits.
The award recipients are determined by votes cast through the Chase Community Giving Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving). Chase customers can also vote at http://www.ChaseGiving.com, by logging in with their normal sign in credentials. Voting began on September 6th and runs through September 19th. The 196 charities and not-for-profits receiving the most votes will be awarded grants from Chase that range from $10,000 to $250,000.
Receiving one of these grants would help us bring in new exhibits, like the upcoming “Homer’s Odyssey: From the Badlands to Burpee” exhibit, as well as continue educating and inspiring people about the natural world around us.
Please go to the Chase Community Facebook page, ChaseGiving.org (or both!), and search for “Harry and Della Burpee Museum Association” or “Burpee Museum of Natural History.” From there you will be directed to the page where you can vote for the Burpee Museum.
At the moment, if we could get 1,000 votes we would be well into the leaderboard standings. Please vote, and ask your Facebook friends and families to do the same. We cannot achieve this without your help and support.
Very sincerely yours,
The Burpee Crew
