The different Technology for Social Good programs that we offer really showcases that social good is in our DNA at JPMorgan Chase.
Code for Good is our opportunity to bring in university students to our offices and brainstorm for twenty-four hours on how nonprofits can solve a challenge that they’re facing.
We would like to ask you how we can provide vital security information to our staff.

And based on their pitch, we decide who the grand prize winner is, but it just doesn’t end there.
The ideas these students come up with in twenty-four hours are then brought to life by our technologists over a period of eight months.

Dozens of JPMorgan Chase technologists raise their arms in celebration!
