Our Support For Louisiana
We are all shaken by the devastating impact of Hurricane Ida. We’ve confirmed that all of our employees are safe, but recognize that many have been affected, either directly or indirectly, by the aftermath of this disaster.
Across the state, many communities remain flooded, with roads blocked or damaged and homes destroyed. An overwhelming number of people are left without power, with limited access to cell phone, food, and water and sewer services.
To support relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts, JPMorgan Chase has committed $250K in grants to the Bayou Community Foundation, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, the Greater New Orleans Foundation and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana. These funds will help to provide immediate and urgent relief as well as long-term recovery efforts in the areas of Louisiana that need them most.
In addition to immediate disaster relief, the firm continues to invest in community resilience, supporting organizations and initiatives that help communities better prepare for natural disasters and manage the aftermath. In 2020, JPMorgan Chase committed $1.3 million to help vulnerable communities in the Greater New Orleans Region prepare for and rebound from natural disasters.
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 situation closely across the state and stay in close contact in impacted areas.
