The Foundation provides $1 Million to assist four organizations providing humanitarian relief and will match employee donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1 Million
JPMorgan Chase & Co. today announced up to $2 million in donations from its foundation and employees to provide immediate relief to refugees and help address the humanitarian crisis in Europe. Grants totaling $1 million from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation will support Save the Children, Oxfam, International Rescue Committee and International Medical Corps as they provide vital resources such as food, water, hygienic kits and medical support to those refugees arriving in Italy, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and Lebanon.
The JPMorgan Chase Foundation is also launching an employee giving campaign that will match employee donations dollar-for-dollar to these organizations. Specifically, the Foundation will double donations made by employees up to $500,000 for a total of $1 million in additional support.
"Every refugee deserves to live free of violence and fear and have access to the resources they need to survive," said Dalila Wilson-Scott, Head of Global Philanthropy, JPMorgan Chase. "With our support, Save the Children, Oxfam, International Rescue Committee and International Medical Corps will be able to support the hundreds of thousands of people fleeing conflict in their home countries."
