Univest Corporation Launches Caring For Community Giveaway; Local Nonprofit Will Win $5,000
Univest Corporation today announced the Caring for Community Giveaway, a contest that will award $5,000 to a local, nonprofit organization.
At the start of 2012, Univest launched the "Committed to Local" giving program, an initiative that provides financial support to local nonprofits to help make a difference in the neighborhoods it serves. As the year comes to a close, Univest is turning the tables by asking its customers and community members which local nonprofit deserves financial assistance. Through the Caring for Community Giveaway, Univest will randomly award $5,000 to a deserving, local, nonprofit organization nominated by the members of the community it serves.
Here’s how it works:
- Identify of a local nonprofit that deserves the $5,000 donation.
- Nominate the group by posting a comment on the Univest Facebook page at www.facebook.com/UnivestCorporation explaining why the group should win the money.
- Each “post” counts as an entry in the contest for the organization nominated. So, the more people that post on behalf of an organization, the better the chance that organization has to be randomly selected as the winner of $5,000.
The contest begins on December 3, 2012 and will run through December 31, 2012. To be eligible to win the $5,000, the nonprofit group must be a registered 501 (c) (3) organization that aligns with the Univest giving guidelines and operates somewhere in the Univest service area of Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties and the Lehigh Valley. Additional details about the Caring for Community Giveaway and our giving guidelines can be found at www.univest.net/CTL.
