Selected for the first time to participate in Bangor Savings Bank’s Community Matters More, The Chase Home in Portsmouth is asking the community for its vote.
Each year, Community Matters More allows community members to become actively involved in grant giving as they decide which nonprofits will receive financial support from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation. The two nonprofits with the most votes in each geographic region will receive a $5,000 grant, while the remaining agencies will receive $1,000.
“We are thrilled to be on the 2020 Community Matters More ballot,” said The Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler. “This is a wonderful initiative.”
Founded in 1877, The Chase Home in Portsmouth is one of the oldest nonprofits in New Hampshire, serving more than 140 at-risk youth annually statewide through prevention, early intervention, residential and community-based programs. Some youth are served in the community while others live at The Chase Home.
Voting for the Community Matters More campaign takes place during the entire month of February. All votes must be completed by online ballot at www.bangor.com/cmm. Only one online ballot per person is eligible for submission.
