The National MPS Society has joined with Chase Community Giving and Facebook for an exciting opportunity to receive $500,000. JP Morgan Chase has given away more than $100 million to nonprofit organizations each year. Chase Community Giving was established in 2009 as a “new way forward for giving”. This unique program lets fans of Chase Community Giving vote to help determine where Chase donates millions of dollars.
The National MPS Society was awarded $25,000 in Round 1 thanks to your votes, allowing us to present a Big Idea for funding in Round 2.
How Does The Program Work?
The National MPS Society submitted our Round 2 Big Idea, “How To Save a Child”, with funding focused on Research. The 25 eligible charities with the most votes during Round 2 will receive grants ranging from $20,000 to $500,000! In addition, Chase’s Advisory Board will be fund an additional $500,000 of discretionary funds to the top 100 charities.
This is an amazing awareness opportunity and source of critical funding for us to increase our investment in research to find cures for individuals affected by all MPS and related diseases.

We need everyone’s help. You can vote once only for up to 5 charities. You only have ONE vote for the National MPS Society! PLEASE SHARE THIS with family, friends, colleagues and any networking group with whom you are affiliated―schools, churchs and alumni groups. We won in Round 1. Now let’s really rally together for something even more, $500,000 to help save our children. We need to build momentum and reach out to everyone for their ONE Society vote.
We are collaborating with other charities participating in this program and encourage you to cast your remaining votes to them: Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, The Arbor School, and The Little Light House. They are asking their friends and families to vote for the National MPS Society, so together we will create a greater impact for the special needs community.
The resulting publicity will increase awareness about MPS and related diseases and create an opportunity for the Society to receive recognition during Round 2 of the contest. Please see our “How to Save A Child” Big Idea and video.
