Publish date:

The Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, a non-profit organization providing financial and other support to the Coast Guard Auxiliary, is competing with charities nationwide for donations through the Chase Community Giving program.

People can assure the auxiliary association's success by voting for it through the Chase program on Facebook.

Using social media networks, the Chase program has already directed more than $10 million toward charities nationwide. This year's program will give 200 additional charities a chance to win grants to support their mission.

"The Coast Guard Auxiliary Association is constantly striving to strengthen the Coast Guard Auxiliary's community outreach. Receiving $25,000 would seriously help ensure the great work of the association around the country," said Jim Vass, chairman and CEO of the association, in a statement.
