We look at the ongoing impact of J.P. Morgan’s Tech for Social Good organisation as it celebrates its tenth year
An app designed to give charity workers crucial updates about epidemics. A virtual banking environment that helps people practice managing their finances digitally. A tool that aggregates safety and security data, allowing rescue charities to spend more time delivering their vital services on the ground.
These are just a few of the 1,300 projects that J.P. Morgan’s Tech for Social Good has helped deliver for charities over the course of the last ten years.
Since the beginning, Tech for Social Good has helped 780 non-profit organisations and donated more than 425,000 hours of work – the equivalent of 48 whole years delivered in just ten.
More than 12,000 J.P. Morgan employees have participated in the programme over the last decade, working across 100 countries to deliver innovative tech solutions to their clients and partners.
They each contribute their skills to four different areas under the Tech for Social Good umbrella: Code for Good, the Youth programmes, Emerging Talent, and Force for Good, a skills-based volunteering initiative that partners J.P. Morgan technologists with worthy causes.
Through Force for Good alone, J.P. Morgan estimates that more than a million lives have been positively impacted by its collaboration with charities and non-profits. The bank’s volunteers have helped implement more than 600 technological solutions for projects all over the world.
Whether charities need an app, a better way to deliver up-to-date information to their constituents, or both of those things combined and more, J.P. Morgan’s technologists are on hand to help.
Force for Good technologists are able to identify suitable, scalable and sustainable solutions to the even the toughest of challenges for charities, tailoring them to the existing skills and expertise of each organisation.
Most importantly, these solutions are designed to be maintained long after the J.P. Morgan technologists have stepped away.
The 2021 Force for Good is open for applications now. Charities looking to improve their efficiency and resilience through digital technology can apply before Friday 27 August 2021 for the opportunity to be matched with a team of technologists from J.P. Morgan.
Those selected to participate will work with a team of up to ten technologists over a period of four to eight months on a digital project that will expand the reach and effectiveness of their charity work.
Charities interested in applying can download a list of application questions to circulate with their colleagues in preparation, or email any further questions directly to the Force for Good team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
