J.P. Morgan Give-It-Away campaign honors The Wall Street Warfighters Foundation as U.S. donation recipient
Jan 10, 2012
J.P. Morgan’s global Give-It-Away campaign invites undergraduate and graduate students each year to select a non-profit organization to receive money the firm would otherwise spend on campus giveaways.
Using a list of possible recipients compiled by the firm, students cast their vote for a non-profit to receive funds. The funds help to rebuild communities, support education initiatives, improve healthcare and change lives around the world. J.P. Morgan’s Give-It-Away program has donated more than $350,000 globally over the last five years.
This year, the firm has selected non-profit organizations from Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas to participate in the Give-It-Away campaign. A total of $75,000 will be donated globally, with $25,000 given to the student-selected local organization in each region.
This year’s U.S. Give-It-Away donation recipient is the Wall Street Warfighters Foundation (WSWF), which will use the $25,000 from J.P. Morgan for a scholarship to train a wounded veteran for a career in the financial services industry.
"The generosity of J.P. Morgan’s Give-It-Away program contributes to the success of our nation's wounded warriors in a very meaningful way,” said Katie Haddock, executive director at WSWF. “Wall Street Warfighters can continue to identify, train and place disabled veterans in careers in the financial services industry thanks to your support.”
WSWF was created to identify, develop and place service disabled veterans in careers in the financial services industry. For more information, visit www.wallstreetwarfighters.org.
