Greater Paris

Across Greater Paris, we work with non-profit, government and business leaders to help uplift local communities. We recognize our role in advancing a more inclusive economy and are committed to supporting small business growth and helping to connect underserved individuals to employment opportunities.


As the oldest U.S. bank in France, we’ve been proud to serve French clients and communities for more than 150 years. We strive to apply our unique expertise, insights, and resources to help address some of the most pressing societal challenges. By helping underserved residents tap into the growing economic opportunities stemming from public and private investments, we can help create greater inclusive growth and opportunity in the region.

In 2018, marking the 150th anniversary of JPMorgan Chase in France, we announced a five-year $30 million USD philanthropic investment in the region, particularly focused in Seine-Saint-Denis. Five years later, we’re building on key learnings to expand our initial investment - announcing $70 million in new commitments to create economic opportunity across France, bringing our total commitment since 2018 to $100 million. We have found that through our support for and close collaboration with community partners, our commitment has helped people from underserved neighborhoods attain skills, work experience and employment in growing and resilient sectors; supported entrepreneurs to build financial resilience and accelerate their growth; and strengthened and scaled the local non-profit ecosystem—all of which can help create long-lasting impact.
