The Coast Guard Auxiliary Association will receive $25,000 from Chase Charity Giving as part of Chase's $25 million commitment to charities during the next two years.

The association finished in the top 100 charities in the first round of the 2011 Chase Charity Giving campaign on Facebook. It will now move to the second round to compete for an additional prize pool worth $500,000

The association is the non-profit arm that supports the Coast Guard Auxiliary and its volunteers in communities across the nation. The group provides outreach and educational programs to further community-based programs.

During the second round the association will be submitting a "Big Idea" describing how it would use $500,000 to further its cause.

Beginning May 19, Facebook users will vote again to select the best ideas among the top 100 charities. The 25 charities that receive the most votes will receive between $20,000 and $500,000.

The winners of the second round will be announced May 26.
