Residents can help by voting for Liberty Business Education Alliance (aka Liberty Union High School District ED Foundation) through the Chase Community Giving program on Facebook. So far the Alliance has only received 25 votes.
“Because Funding for education in California continues to be cut by state legislatures, it’s imperative that we receive support from locals, whether by supporting us on Facebook in the Chase Community Giving grant process or in the form of a direct donation,” said LUHSD ED Foundation President Karen Rarey.
The fall 2012 round of the Chase Community Giving program is designed to benefit smaller and local charities by being limited to 501(c)3 charities with operating budgets under $10 million. The top eligible charity receives $250,000 and the remaining 195 top charities earn $10,000 through $100,000 awards for a total of $5 million in grants.
“Even at the lowest grant level of $10,000,” said Rarey, “it will help enable the ED Foundation to continue to fund innovative programs and cutting-edge technology that will in turn help to increase the academic achievement of the students attending Freedom, Heritage, Independence, La Paloma and Liberty high schools.
Residents can help by visiting Facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving and casting their vote. You must download the Chase Community Giving application to vote.
