It’s set to air Saturday, December 8, 2012 on NBC at 8:00/7:00 p.m. (CT) from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA. Travis will serve as a musical performer during the awards show, which is a celebrity tribute to community heroes.

Twenty-five grant recipients from previous Chase Community Giving programs have been selected to participate in the inspiring, star-studded event. Five of the charities will be chosen to share $2 million in grants.

“Giving back to the community is something that I support and believe is truly important. I am honored to be part of this year’s American Giving Awards,” says Travis.

In 2009, Chase Community Giving was introduced as a new way of giving by letting individuals vote online to help decide where some of Chase's donations go. Since the program's inception, over $28 million has been donated to thousands of charities across the country, contributing to JPMorgan Chase's overall giving of more than $600 million to non-profit organizations over the past five years.
