JP Morgan Chase Gives $200,000 to Good Work Network
NEW ORLEANS – Entrepreneurs working to recover from the impacts of COVID-19 have additional resources at their disposal, thanks to a $200,000 grant from JP Morgan Chase to the Good Work Network. The funding will support programming for women and minority small business owners, including one-on-one advising, growth planning, and increased skill building for business management in uncertain times. Additionally, a portion of the grant will be used to create a fund that Good Work Network clients can tap to build capacity in marketing, human resources, finance and more.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant challenges for the New Orleans community, and we know that women- and minority-owned businesses have been disproportionately impacted,” said Diana Holmes, the new community branch manager for Chase in New Orleans. “JPMorgan Chase applauds Good Work Network’s efforts to ensure that businesses so critical to the fabric of our city are able to weather this storm and come back from this pandemic stronger.”
The network is thankful to funders like JPMorgan Chase, which has committed $1.2 million since 2007.
“We are extremely grateful to JPMorgan Chase for its continued support of our mission to help minority business grow and thrive. Their support, along with our earlier investments in web-based business development tools, have been extraordinary assets in our fight for greater economic inclusion,” said Hermione Malone, executive director for Good Work Network.
