Egyptian Cancer Network Wins $250,000 Top Honor

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chase announced today the winners of the 2012 Chase Community Giving program, a crowd-sourced philanthropy program launched in 2009. 196 charities selected by Facebook users and Chase online customers will receive a share in $5 million in grants from Chase. Winning charities will use the funding for a variety of meaningful causes such as revitalizing communities, supporting the performing arts, finding homes for homeless animals, and raising money and awareness for cancer research.


Chase Community Giving voters selected Boston's Egyptian Cancer Network (ECN) to receive a $250,000 grant from Chase. Over 90,000 votes were cast for ECN, which helps to further cancer education, research, and care as well as medical infrastructure in Egypt.

Ten runner-up charities were selected to receive $100,000 from Chase. These charities are:
