The work we do at SFMade would not be possible without dedicated, generous funders like JPMorgan Chase, an organization that has supported our work since 2013. JPMC was the first organization to invest in our successful youth program, which exposes youth to the manufacturing industry through Inside Manufacturing, a career exposure program run in San Francisco Unified High Schools that features factory tours, workshops, speaking events, and YouthMade, SFMade’s internship program, which places high school youth into 6-week, paid internships.
JPMC has demonstrated an appetite for supporting creative and entrepreneurial approaches and a desire to dig deep financially to help us expand our capacity to create greater impact for local manufacturers and increase the number of well-paying jobs they create for local residents.
“We are proud to partner with SFMade as we move forward together to advance solutions creating new career pathways centered around Next Generation Manufacturing. Our model for impact is especially important in this newly evolving environment as we acutely focus on connecting local and diverse communities with opportunities that will build wealth and economic prosperity.” – Amy Wallace, Vice President for Global Philanthropy-Northern California at JPMorgan Chase.
Manufacturing is a beacon of hope, and JPMC’s support is critical to building bridges to employment. Thank you, JPMorgan Chase!
