Jamie Dimon Releases JPMorgan Chase's Annual Letter
As part of our 2018 Annual Report, JPMorgan Chase Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon released his annual letter to shareholders discussing the company's performance and his views on capitalism as a force for good.
"When everyone has a fair shot at participating in and sharing in the rewards of growth," Jamie Dimon said, "the economy will be stronger and our society will be better."
In March, we announced a $350 million, five-year global initiative to prepare for the future of work and to meet the growing demand for skilled workers.
This commitment builds on our initial five-year workforce program and focuses on creating economic mobility and career pathways for underserved populations, as well as building a future-ready workforce at our firm.
Expanding Economic Opportunity for Black Americans
In February, we announced the launch of Advancing Black Pathways, an effort which leverages resources across the firm to help more black Americans achieve economic success.
"As leaders in business as well as the broader community, we know we have a responsibility to society," said Mellody Hobson and Jamie Dimon in a joint opinion article, "Not to mention, as financial services executives, we can help foster widespread prosperity."
AdvancingCities Challenge Winners Receive $15 Million to Address Persistent Issues
As part of our $500 million, five-year initiative to invest in solutions that bolster the long-term vitality of the world's cities, we recently announced the five winners of the inaugural AdvancingCities Challenge, an annual competition to source innovative and sustainable solutions. The winning cities — Chicago, Louisville, Miami, San Diego and Syracuse — will each receive $3 million over the course of three years to address the most persistent challenges facing their communities.
Expanding Opportunity for Hong Kong Students Pursuing STEM Careers
We committed $1.5 million over three years to the Hong Kong Vocational Training Council (VTC) to establish the Future-ready Talent Incubation Program. The Program will help nearly 600 VTC students pursue STEM-related careers through a combination of skills training and career planning experiences.
The Role Tax Refunds Play for the Average American Family
The JPMorgan Chase Institute released a new study documenting how tax refunds and tax payments affect families' income, saving and spending. The Institute found that tax refunds are a major financial event – often amounting to six weeks of take-home pay for an average family – that resets the spending patterns of families who receive them. In fact, just six months after receiving a refund, the average family's spending levels have settled to a new steady-state.
Investing in Fintech Solutions to Promote Financial Health Globally
In May, we committed $125 million over five years to nonprofit groups in the United States and around the world to improve the financial health of underserved communities. Through collaboration with community organizations, this commitment will also help inform the development of products and services that will help those in underserved communities increase their savings, build credit, reduce debt and achieve their financial goals.

"I was no different than these students when I was their age," Schools Challenge mentor and J.P. Morgan employee Samia Barni said, "It's incredibly special to be a bridge for them." Our Schools Challenge expands educational opportunities for students in underserved communities by pairing them with mentors from across our business.
Environmental, Social and Governance Report Underlines Commitment to Accountability
