The July 2004 merger of JP Morgan Chase and Bank One Corporation created one of the biggestâ€”and best financial services companies in the world that is also one of the most committed to the public good. Chaseâ€™s partnership with the Arvada Centerâ€™s recent sponsorship of The Full Monty is but one recent example of Chaseâ€™s investment in our community by helping to bring award-winning theater to the Rocky Mountain region. Providing quality service is Chaseâ€™s primary goal. While it continues to be the local bank that has served Colorado since 1874, Chase now can provide customers with a wider array of products and services than ever before.
Chase customers in Colorado have access to locations in 25 citiesâ€”including more than 70 banking centers and 100 ATMsâ€”plus 24-hour-a-day online and telephone banking. Chase works to make its services more convenient and accessible, while also introducing new and improved products that provide solutions to customersâ€™ needs. More than ever, Chase delivers maximumstrength banking. Chase believes in investing in local communities; not only is it the right thing to do, it makes good business sense: Businesses do better when the communities they serve are vibrant and healthy. Thatâ€™s why, in 2005, the investment company Chase gave more than $900,000 to Colorado charities and provided more than $35 million in Colorado community development loans and investments.
The companyâ€™s giving is strategically focused on community economic development, youth education, and arts and culture. Chase works in partnership with not-for-profit organizations to create vital, selfsustaining communities, and its primary partnerships are designed to serve the needs of low- and moderate-income individuals and communities. In addition to grants, investments, and loans, Chase provides its expertise and human capital to help revitalize neighborhoods, build affordable housing, expand access to capital, and develop financial literacy skills. Chase also is committed to improving the quality of life in our communities, which is why it supports arts and cultural institutions. Here in Colorado, Chase is proud to make its financial resources and 1,300 employees available to enhance the quality of life in all of the communities it serves.
