J.P. Morgan partnership with Bankers without Borders continues to support program’s global expansion
Feb 24, 2011
A three-year, $3 million grant from J.P. Morgan is supporting the global expansion of the Bankers without Borders® program to reach the world’s poorest people. Since 2010, more than 50 J.P. Morgan employees have already volunteered across 25 Bankers without Borders® projects and nearly 400 more employees are registered for future assignments.
A key component of J.P. Morgan’s support of Bankers without Borders® is providing employees with opportunities to use their skills and training across a range of volunteer services, including finance, human resources, business development, marketing and technology — and banking.
The Grameen Foundation is a leading nonprofit organization working around the world to alleviate poverty through microfinance and technology-for-development solutions. With J.P. Morgan’s support, Bankers without Borders®, a Grameen Foundation volunteer program, is able to expand globally, help build the capacity of microfinance institutions, and advance broader private sector support for volunteerism to improve the lives and livelihoods of the poor.
