Advancing Cities

Expanding opportunity on Chicago’s South and West Sides.

For over 150 years, JPMorgan Chase has served the Chicago community – and with nearly 4.5 million customers, nearly 500,000 business clients and 14,000 employees in Chicagoland, we remain committed to the city and its people. At a critical time in Chicago’s history, we recognize the need to create economic opportunity on the South and West sides and address racial disparities that have adversely impacted communities of color. 

We will continue building on our recent efforts: In 2017, we committed $40 million to the South and West sides. Working alongside community, business, philanthropic and public sector leaders, we have worked to identify evidence-based solutions that drive inclusive recovery and growth. In 2018, JPMorgan Chase committed an additional $10 million in low-cost, long-term capital to boost small businesses and retail storefronts on the South and West sides. We know that there is much more we can do to create equal economic opportunity in Chicago, and we are proud to be invested in Chicago for today and tomorrow.
