MADISON, Wis. (1/10/11)--Twelve Madison, Wis.-area nonprofit organizations have been selected for Heartland CU's "Go Local" contest, in which they will compete for a $10,000 donation from the credit union. The 12 organizations have posted what they would do with the $10,000 on the Go Local Contest page of the credit union's website (use the link). Voting is open on Heartland's website and the public can cast votes until April 3 on which nonprofit should receive the donation, said the credit union. The organization receiving the most votes will receive the donation. The contest is part of Heartland's "Go Local" campaign, which gives $75,000 back to the credit union's communities via donations, services and employees' volunteer time in 2010 and 2011. Earlier it enlisted the public's help in nominating local nonprofits that make a difference and do their part to support their communities. "We were so impressed by the hundreds of nominations that we had for the contest, and even though we planned on 10 finalists, there were so many deserving nonprofits we chose 12," said Sally Dischler, CEO of Heartland CU. "Our Go Local semifinalists represent so many great projects and stories, and we can't wait to see how the community votes." The winner will be announced in May.
