Just before the 2018 general primary elections (May 15, people!), here comes another chance for you to exercise your American right to vote — but now, it’s to benefit pups or kiddos.

Energy supplier NRG is back with its annual NRG Gives campaign, and one of the following Philly nonprofits can win $100,000 by a public vote:

The second-place winner will score $20,000, while third will get $10,000. Voting is only open from Monday, April 30, through Monday, May 7, so get to it. The winner will be announced on May 9.

Over the past three years and including this funding round, NRG Gives will have donated more than $375,000 to 13 nonprofits: DREAM Philadelphia took home the top prize against Career Wardrobe and Friends of the Wissahickon in 2017, while MANNA won against Gift of Life Family House and Community Foundation for the Alleghenies in 2016. The company also announced a new program last year that lets customers donate part of their bill to one of four local nonprofits.
