Jobs and Skills

Helping people develop the skills they need to compete for today’s jobs can transform lives and strengthen economies.

Small Business Expansion

Small businesses and entrepreneurs generate jobs, create diverse communities and are vital to prosperous cities.

Neighborhood Revitalization

To thrive, communities need investment beyond the urban core to create neighborhoods where diverse individuals and families at all income levels can live.

We refined this model through our work in Detroit, where in 2014 we launched what we saw as “proof of concept” of our approach. We have since seen that this model yields real results — and we are extending it to communities around the world.

“[JPMorgan Chase] is the largest bank in Detroit … Since 2014, the company has been doubling down on that relationship, in a daring experiment to help revitalize Detroit’s middle-class core. The bank’s effort, called Invested in Detroit, is a neighborhood-by-neighborhood campaign to revive local real estate, launch small businesses and train residents for in-demand jobs — all at the same time, as quickly as possible.

Detroit’s reemergence coincided with a philosophical shift at the bank. It’s already a formidable donor … [but] it retooled its giving to tackle economic insecurity itself — focusing on small business expansion, job-skills training, neighborhood development and financial counseling… It’s an approach that leverages what banks already do well — lending people capital and giving them advice about how to deploy it.

[T]hree years of progress with Invested in Detroit has convinced [JPMorgan Chase] that they’ve assembled the right tool kit for revitalizing American cities.”
