Vote for LGBT Youth Causes in Chase Community Giving Facebook Campaign

GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), the Matthew Shepard Foundation and The Trevor Project – three organizations that work to improve the lives of LGBT youth – are among 100 finalists in Chase Community Giving, a campaign by Chase and Facebook to award $5 million to charities voted on by Facebook users.

These three fantastic groups are the only LGBT-focused organizations among the 100 finalists and announced they are pooling resources and offer each other support in the hope that all three will be among the final six vote-getters. The top vote-getter receives $1 million. Five runners-up receive $100,000 each. Voting begans Jan. 15 and runs until Jan. 22. Each Facebook user is eligible to vote for up to five charities.
