Supporting relief efforts and climate resilience in California
Californians are living through yet another record-breaking wildfire season with each year seemingly more devastating than the last. In these times, especially, we’re stronger when we stand together.
To support relief efforts for the communities affected by the fires, JPMorgan Chase is making a $200K commitment to the League of California Community Foundations and the California Fire Foundation. With our contribution, these organizations will support immediate disaster relief and long-term recovery and disaster preparedness for communities impacted by the disasters and provide emotional and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters, active firefighters and the communities they serve.
In addition to immediate disaster relief, we continue to invest in community resilience, supporting organizations and initiatives that help communities better prepare for natural disasters and manage the aftermath.
In California, over the last two years alone, we’ve deployed $2 million in community resiliency efforts addressing drought, wildfires, and other natural disasters.
And as a firm, we are committed to working with clients and promoting long-term solutions for a more sustainable future. We have set a target to finance and facilitate $2.5 trillion over the next 10 years – including $1 trillion for green activities – to address climate change and contribute to sustainable development.
We’re here for our employees and our communities. We will continue to monitor the wildfires closely across the state throughout this season and stay in close contact in impacted areas.
