Chime In For Change

10k Grant Initiative by Chime

At Chime, we’re helping change banking for the better. This means always “chiming in” to challenge the status quo to create meaningful change and celebrating those around us who share the same values.   So we’re inviting you to join us and Chime in for Changemakers across America with our new initiative to recognize and reward people who are going above and beyond in their local communities. 

In the words of Mr. Rogers mother, when there are scary things on TV, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

So, we looked. And we were amazed. Grocery store workers, folks in food service, first responders, health care workers, all essential workers, and beyond— acting selflessly every day to help others through these unprecedented times.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing these Changemaker stories from across the United States—and now, we need your help looking for the helpers too

Do you know someone making a change in your community?

Chime in, tell us what they’re doing, and we could send $10,000 their way (and give $2,000 to you)! We’ll also feature them on our social media channels to spotlight the work that they are doing.  

We think it’s time banking chimed in for these Changemakers. Follow the steps below to nominate a Changemaker in your community.
