Christmas came early this year for the Ethan Jostad Foundation. Chase Bank donated a very generous $20,000 to the Foundation for childhood cancer. This organization provides support for childhood cancer. They received the award on Dec. 20 at the Eagle Point branch.
The foundation was established as a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization solely supported by individuals and businesses. The mission is to provide smiles on the faces of children battling cancer. They accomplish this through toy packages, providing families with financial assistance, raising awareness of childhood cancer and funding research to help find a cure.
The Chase Community Giving was introduced in 2009 as a new way forward for giving. It is a program that lets participants and customers vote to determine where Chase donates millions of dollars. Since the program’s inception, nearly 3.5 million Facebook users have “liked” Chase Community giving. In total, millions of people have helped chase donate over $20 million to over 500 charities in 41 states, Washington, /d. C. and Puerto Rico. Chase community giving is part of JPMorgan Chase’s annual giving, which totals more than $150 million each year.
