J.P. Morgan Chase Bank Berhad

– As part of our partnership with SOLS 24/7, two dozen staff conducted virtual classroom sessions for 35 youths, covering topics on financial, physical and mental health, and resilience.

At J.P. Morgan, we invest in our customers, employees, and communities around the world to break down barriers to opportunity and create an economy that works for more people. We combine our business and policy expertise, capital, and data to advance four universal pillars of opportunity: jobs and skills, small business expansion, neighborhood revitalization, and financial health.

J.P. Morgan’s Philanthropic Work in Malaysia

We focus our grant-making on workforce readiness programs for youths that narrow skills gaps, improving the employment opportunities for underserved youths in growing industries. Our grantee MySkills Foundation is training 400 at-risk youths in electrical, plumbing, air-conditioning, welding, life management and other soft skills. We are also supporting the organization to create new training modules on digital and entrepreneurial skills and pilot vocational training streams in the corporate secretarial and care work sectors. Our partnership with SOLS 24/7 – another grantee – also provided training to 100 underserved youths in solar energy, English, basic IT and soft skills development to equip them for jobs in the solar energy industry.

Employee Engagement and Volunteering 

Over the past year, our employees have engaged in a variety of initiatives. Earlier in the year, they organized a clothes and bedding donations drive to aid flood victims and children welfare homes, collecting over 90 kg of bedding and 265 pieces of new children’s clothing. The firm also donated used IT equipment in support of Medical Awareness Camp Outreach’s Empowerment Computer Program, which builds and/or upgrades school computer labs. We were able to repurpose more than a hundred monitors and keyboards.  Furthermore, staff partnered with Rise Against Hunger in September to pack 10,000 meals to feed those affected by the food shortage crisis in Sri Lanka.
