Museum Seeks Votes in Grant Contest
Do you use Facebook? If so, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation needs your help! The foundation has entered Chase Bank's Community Giving Program.
The program gives almost 200 different organizations around the world a chance to win a part of $5 million in grants from JPMorgan Chase.
Chase requires all of the organizations to participate in a contest on Facebook. The winner of online voting will get $2.5 million.
"All of the funds that the foundation uses is mainly solely to support the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, museum, and the culture programs, exhibits," membership director Phyllis Evans said. "Anything like that associated through the foundation."
The presidential library is asking everyone to go onto the Chase Community Giving page and vote. The library would be the only winner Springfield has had.
Voting ends Wednesday.
