Who we are

Chase International Foundation nonprofit was founded by Shari Chase in 2022, a reflection of her commitment to making a positive and lasting difference in the lives of others.

We raise funds to distribute to agencies in the local communities we serve that address the basic human needs for shelter, food, safety, and well-being. With these basic needs met, people are given the opportunity to become proud and productive members of their community. We serve our global community through support of our Hela Bima World nonprofit initiatives, including our Hela Bima Rice Project in Sri Lanka.

what we do

Our 2024 Goal is $50,000

We invite our donors to support our Four Pillars of Giving

Shelter – The reasons behind homelessness are as varied as those experiencing it. We donate to nonprofit organizations that provide services focused on outreach efforts that connect the homeless to available resources, bridge-housing, temporary and permanent independent shelter solutions, assistance that allows people to remain in their current housing situation, and pathways to independent living.  

Food – We donate to nonprofit organizations that support the collection and distribution of food to those in need, such as food banks and meal delivery programs.

Wellbeing – We donate to nonprofit organizations that support mental, emotional and physical wellbeing programs including services such as behavioral therapy, addiction treatment, physical rehabilitation, domestic violence intervention, trauma intervention (PTSD), disability assistance, suicide prevention, veterans support, nutritional education, and preventative health services.

Safety – We donate to nonprofit organizations that support the physical and emotional safety and rehabilitation of those who have suffered violence and human trafficking.


Chase Cares is the volunteer arm of our foundation. We support existing and emergency needs in our communities by researching how our Chase family can best help, communicating the opportunity, encouraging participation, and coordinating our group effort. Our Chase family has the opportunity to give more than money.

We have two grant cycles per year. We accept grant applications from January 1 through June 15 for the first cycle, with awards granted the first week of July. We accept grant applications from July 1 through November 15 for the second cycle, with awards granted the third week of December.
