About the J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation

Our mission is to enable more people to contribute to and share in the rewards of a growing economy. We believe that reducing inequality and creating widely-shared prosperity requires collaboration of business, government, nonprofit and other civic organizations. We use our firm’s global scale, talent, and resources to make investments and create partnerships in the areas of workforce readiness, small business expansion, and financial capability. In 2018, the firm and its Foundation gave $265 million to advance inclusive growth globally, with approximately 59,000 employees providing over 400,000 hours of volunteer service.

J.P. Morgan’s Philanthropic Work in Malaysia

We focus our grant-making on workforce readiness programs, taking steps to help narrow skills gaps, integrating industry requirements into training curricula, and ensuring underserved youth have employment pathways into the country’s fastgrowing industries. Our grantee SOLS 24/7 is providing training for 100 underserved youths in solar energy, English, basic IT, and soft skills development in order to attain jobs in the solar energy industry. Through our partnership with MySkills Foundation, we are aligning its curriculum to industry requirements and training 300 at-risk youth in electrical, plumbing, air-conditioning, life management, and soft skills.
