Chase Invests in Utah’s Future

This past week, Chase invested in Utah’s future by donating $125,000 to support United Way of Salt Lake’s comprehensive strategy for low-income neighborhoods.  United Way Neighborhood Centers are hubs for residents with before and after-school programs, tutoring, mentoring and leadership training.

“We can have a bigger impact by working through United Way in continuing to build the infrastructure to support youth and their families,” said Craig Zollinger, President of JPMorgan Chase in Utah. “With this significant investment, Chase can help 70 local programs and partnerships.”

The neighborhoods where United Way focuses its work struggle with violent crime, high drop-out rates and poverty.  Chase is fueling United Way’s work with partners such as school districts, cities, counties and educational institutions.  In addition, local businesses, nonprofits, community organizations and neighborhood residents are working together to develop long-term solutions and create a web of support for children and their parents.

“This generous support from Chase is critically important as we work with partners to find solutions to complex community issues,” said Deborah Bayle, President and CEO, United Way of Salt Lake. “This support will help create a sense of unity in neighborhoods and ensure fewer youth are involved in gangs, more kids are prepared to learn, and parents have the tools they need to support their families.”

In Utah, grants from Chase focus primarily on education and economic stability. To find out more about the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and grants made in Utah and around the world, visit www.jpmorganchase.com/giving or email cree.zischke@jpmchase.com.
