I hope this email finds you well. I’m writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity for YouthBuild Philadelphia, and to ask for your help. YouthBuild Philly is one of 25 organizations eligible to win up to $1,000,000 through the American Giving Awards program sponsored by Chase Bank. Winners will be determined by online votes. This is a national competition and the winners will be announced at a televised awards ceremony December 8 on NBC.
YouthBuild Philly gives high school dropouts a second chance to earn their diplomas while learning job skills. Winning a donation between $125,000 to $1,000,000 from Chase will help us send these at-risk students to college and trade schools.
