Recently, Chase Home was awarded a $5,000 KidCents grant from The Rite Aid Foundation. Chase Home is now also eligible for the Foundation’s Step Up Fund, which provides a matching donation of $500 for every $500 a charity receives through designated KidCents contributions up to a maximum of $5,000.
In addition, Chase Home can apply for members-only competitive grant opportunities. Chase Home is also one of the approved KidCents charities that can receive financial contributions through Rite Aid wellness+ with Plenti members who elect to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar and donate their change.
“Thanks to the generosity of our customers, for over three years, our KidCents program has been able to provide critical funding for a variety of programs ranging from equine and aquatic therapy services to after school enrichment to counseling and crisis services for at risk youth,” said President of The Rite Aid Foundation Ken Martindale, who also serves as Rite Aid CEO of stores and president of Rite Aid Corporation.
Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler said she is thrilled at the grant award and said she looks forward to leveraging the numerous opportunities the grant provides to raise additional revenues.
“This grant is huge, because it provides us with cash and the opportunity to get our name and mission out there,” she said. “I think this is an incredible opportunity.”
Founded in 1877 as an orphanage, Chase Home has evolved through the years to meet needs in the greater Seacoast community related to children and youth. Major sponsors of Chase Home in 2017 include The Gove Group Real Estate in Stratham.
