J.P. Morgan Philanthropy Impact Report 2014

For the fourth year running, the J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation commissioned NPC to review its grant-making programme in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

This impact report covers in detail the 36 grants that were completed in 2012 and 2013, focusing in particular on impact and sustainability, and also provides a summary of the 96 grants currently active across the region.

The review summarises our findings and profiles six organisations in detail. It also surveys the grantees to evaluate J.P. Morgan’s performance as a funder. Alongside employee volunteering, the report highlights other types of non-financial support that J.P. Morgan contributes to its grantees.

In summary, we found that:

  • J.P. Morgan continued to expand the reach of its philanthropy programme in EMEA, with the number of countries covered more than doubling from ten in 2009 to 24 in 2013.
  • 84% of grantees believe that J.P. Morgan’s grant has helped them to increase their impact as an organisation.
  • After J.P. Morgan’s funding came to an end, 97% of the projects it supported have been sustained with the continued help of J.P. Morgan, other grant-makers, statutory support or internal funding. This compares to 91% of projects in 2011 and 2012.
  • In 2012 and 2013, 3,375 staff from J.P. Morgan volunteered with around 100 charities in 11 different countries, providing over 20,000 hours of support.
  • Of the grantees that received non-financial support from J.P. Morgan, 88% found it was helpful to their project.
  • All of J.P. Morgan’s 36 grantees met their objectives on activities over the period: 17 of them fully, 19 at least in part.
