Chase Bank is going to award several grants for $500,000 and one for $1 million! The Matthew Shepard Foundation is in the running to receive one of these grants. The decision will be made based on votes collected through Facebook. We need your support.
I am one of the members of the Board of Directors for the Matthew Shepard Foundation. I got involved with the Foundation in 2001 after meeting Judy Shepard. Since that time, I’ve watched this organization do some incredible work not only helping to educate legislators about hate and hate crimes, but also to support young people through Matthewsplace.com. Even though we have federal hate crimes law now in place, the law alone will not stop hate. The Matthew Shepard Foundation is poised to deliver powerful educational program designed to combat hate.
Please take a moment to review the information about this grant opportunity and to vote for the Matthew Shepard Foundation. The deadline is January 22, 2010.
