Help Genealogy Socities - Chase Community Giving

You can help out your favorite genealogy societies and non-profits by visiting the Chase Community Giving page on Facebook.

Chase is letting fans of the Chase Community Giving page vote for their favorite charities. Once you accept and install the application, you are allowed up to 20 votes.

Enter the name of your favorite charity on the lookup field and then cast your vote.  The Chase Community Giving page also allows to to get the word out to your Facebook friends about the charity you voted for and how they can participate.

I was able to locate and vote for these societies that I belong to:
And I still have votes left! Contact me if you'd like me to vote for your favorite charity!

I was unable to locate these groups and have been in contact with them so they can get listed on Chase's site.
If you know of a genealogy or family history-related non-profit that is not listed on the Chase Community Giving Page, click Can't Find The Charity You're Looking For to see if the charity qualifies and then click here to add the required information.

And spread the word - I think if you can contact all your genealogy colleagues you can help channel this available funding to your favorite genealogy societies.

Thanks, Thomas.
I'm not sure why the California Genealogical Society isn't listed but I've submitted our information to Chase. They indicate that approval takes about two days. I'll follow up then.
