Clayton-based nonprofit OASIS is asking community members to cast votes on Facebook to help it win a portion of a $5 million prize.
The funds are being offered by Chase Community Giving. OASIS offers low-cost educational programming to adults age 50 and older. It has more than 90,000 members in the St. Louis area.
One charity will receive $250,000 for getting the most votes. Other organizations will get between $10,000 and $100,000 depending on how many votes they receive.
Here's how to help:
1. Log into your Facebook account.
2. Click here to go to Facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving.
3. Type "OASIS" or the number "43-1830354" in the field titled Search Charities.
4. Select "The OASIS Institute".
In order to participate, voters must agree to let the Chase app access their Facebook page.
Voting continues until Sept. 19.
