Thanks to its supporters, the African Well Fund is one of 195 nonprofit organizations that won a $20,000 donation in the Chase Community Giving challenge on Facebook. AWF finished out the challenge with 1,503 votes.
“Many thanks to all those who made this possible,” said Diane Yoder, AWF board vice chairman. “It is incredible that a small volunteer-run organization like ours was able to remain in the top 200 and win. It truly was a grassroots effort and could not have happened without the many wall posts, Tweets, Retweets and other efforts our supporters made to get the word out. We are so grateful for the support and excited to be able to fund a new project in the coming weeks.”
AWF will post details in the coming weeks about the project that will be funded with the $20,000 donation from Chase.
