ENVISION PERFORMING ARTS IN THE RUNNING TO WIN $250,000 FROM CHASE COMMUNITY GIVING
on 15/11/11Reno, Nevada – eNVision Performing Arts, a Reno/Sparks based non-profit organization working to promote the performing arts in Northern Nevada is competing with charities nationwide for donations of up to $250,000 through the Chase Community Giving program. Residents can help ensure their favorite charity’s success by simply voting for eNVision Performing Arts through the Chase Community Giving program running on the Facebook platform. Through the utilization of the social media networks, the Chase Community Giving program has already directed more than $15 million dollars toward charities nationwide, putting the power to bring positive change across the nation into the hands of those who need it most. Due to enthusiasm, the program is being continued this fall - giving hundreds of additional charities, including SABIAN endorsed eNVision Performing Arts the opportunity to win grants to further their mission.
“eNVision is constantly striving provide area youth an outlet to perform while receiving high levels of education. Receiving even the minimum award of $25,000 would be an unbelievable opportunity to ensure that we can continue to provide our unique opportunities to youth and the community for years to come” said eNVision Performing Arts Director, Aaron Hines.
The fall 2011 round of the Chase Community Giving program is designed to benefit smaller and local charities by limiting participation to 501c3 charities with operating budgets under $1 million. The top eligible charity receives $250,000 and the remaining 99 top charities earn $25,000 through $100,000 awards. More than $3 million dollars will be distributed to top vote-getters. Charities previously awarded grants through Chase Community Giving are not eligible for this round of competition.
eNVision Performing Arts is competing with thousands of charities across the country for awards from Chase. With the support of our volunteers, fans and local residents, eNVision has the opportunity to receive much needed resources to implement large-scale changes to the organization.
Past member William Velez said, "eNVision Performing Arts provides tremendous opportunity. Without being around the inspiring role models and the accomplished and distinguished instructors the organization holds, my life would have kept spiraling down. They gave me a way out from bad influences and bad situations. Playing in the Drumline and performing in front of thousands of people has opened up new doors, creating a new landscape for my life and how I approach my day to day roles."

eNVision is an outstanding program for the Reno/Sparks area. Since our inception in 2007 we have seen the activity in the area flourish. We have produced instructors to go back into the schools and teach our specialty activity where it is needed. We have been very visible in the Reno/Sparks area and want to continue being the premier percussions, guard, and dance program in the area.
