Caring for Sports Giveaway

For 138 years, Univest Corporation has differentiated itself by making it a priority to give back to the communities it serves. Committed to Local is Univest's philanthropic giving program and our way of answering the community's call for increased support right here in the neighborhoods in which we live, work and play. Once each quarter, we like to turn the tables and use our Facebook page to ask YOU, our customers and community members, which local nonprofit deserves our financial assistance. For our third Caring for Community Giveaway of 2014, we partnered with Suburban One Sports to present the Caring for Sports Giveaway, which will award $1,000 to a local school’s Athletic Department.


Here’s how the contest works:

  • Nominate your school by posting a comment with the name of your school to the Univest Facebook page or by tweeting your vote to @UnivestCorp. 
  • Each post/tweet counts as one vote. One vote per person, per day. 
  • The school with the most votes at the end of the contest will win:
    • $1,000 for school’s Athletic Department
    • Fantastic Fans giveaway presented at an October home athletic game
    • Banner to proudly display at your school


The contest runs Monday, September 15, 2014 through Monday, October 6, 2014 at 8:00 a.m.  To be eligible to win the $1,000, the school must be located in the Univest service area of Bucks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties and the Lehigh Valley.


Univest Corporation’s Caring for Sports Giveaway is open to all legal residents of the United States. Participants may post to the Univest Facebook page or tweet @UnivestCorp the organization they support once per day. The winner will be determined by the most votes, and the school must also meet Univest Corporation’s grant-giving standards, contest rules and cannot have already won a Univest Corporation Caring For Community contest in 2014. We request only one school name per post. The winning school will be contacted via phone or email. The promotion runs from Monday, September 15, 2014 through Monday, October 6, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. In the event a winning school cannot be reached and/or does not respond by 5:00 p.m. October 15, 2014, they forfeit the grant to the next school with the most posts. Univest Corporation is not responsible for the organization’s availability or non-response. Univest Corporation reserves the right to modify, suspend or cancel the contest at any time. The Caring for Sports Giveaway is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by or associated with Facebook or Twitter.
