Univest Corporation Launches Caring for the Arts Giveaway; Local Nonprofit Will Win $1,000

SOUDERTON, Pa., March 7, 2013 - Univest Corporation today announced the first Caring for Community Giveaway of 2013, a contest that will award $1,000 to a local, nonprofit arts organization.   As part of its Committed to Local philanthropic giving program, Univest hosts a contest four times each year through its Facebook page in which it asks customers and community members to nominate local nonprofits that deserve financial assistance.  Through the Caring for Arts Giveaway, Univest will award $1,000 to a deserving, local, nonprofit, arts organization selected by the members of the community it serves. 


Here's how it works:

  • Identify a local, nonprofit, arts organization that deserves the $1,000 donation.
  • Nominate the group by posting a comment on the Univest Facebook page, www.facebook.com/UnivestCorporation,
    explaining why the group should win the money. 
  • The nonprofit arts organization with the most posts at the end of the contest will be the winner.


The contest launches on March 8, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. and will run through March 25, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.  To be eligible to win the $1,000, the nonprofit group must be a registered 501 (c) (3) organization that aligns with the Univest giving guidelines and operates somewhere in the Univest service area of Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties and the Lehigh Valley. We encourage you to be an advocate and nominate your favorite local, nonprofit, arts organization for a chance to win $1,000.
