Vote for the Planet Works to Secure $500,000 for Environmental Causes

A few weeks ago we were approached by John of regarding their upcoming campaign to raise funds for a coalition of outdoor and environmental non-profits.

Vote Now!The coalition, Vote for the Planet, was formed to help the member organizations raise funds from contests and our job was to build an interactive website to help the coalition secure votes for the Chase Community Giving Contest.  This has been one of the most rewarding projects that we’ve worked on and we’re very pleased to share it with you.

“After seeing how little funding was being awarded to environmental causes in the last Chase competition, we wanted to do something to help organizations be more competitive,” said John Ullman, President of “We’re also using this opportunity to help organizations better understand how to engage their supporters, and additionally, foster collaboration among fellow non-profits. We are therefore hoping for participating organizations to have both short-term success in winning grants as well as long-term benefits through knowledge sharing and future partnerships with other member organizations.”

The cornerstone of Vote for the Planet is its website, which provides an all-in-one voting guide for the current Chase contest, including instructions, search options,direct voting links, descriptions and social media integration for all the participating organizations.
