Join JPMorgan Chase & Co. in supporting
the Corporate Challenge home: Central Park
NEW YORK, May 1, 2009 — To highlight the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge’s Teaming Up For A Greener Tomorrow initiative, JPMorgan Chase & Co. has announced a program in which it will match contributions made by Corporate Challenge participants to the Central Park Conservancy.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. — the owner and operator of the Corporate Challenge — is a long-time supporter of the Central Park Conservancy, the non-profit organization that manages the world’s most beloved urban park. It has conducted the Corporate Challenge in Central Park for 33 consecutive years, watching the event grow from 200 participants in its 1977 debut to an expected sold-out crowd of 30,000 this coming June 10-11.
The 30,000 participants have the opportunity to give back in a truly meaningful way to one of New York City’s most important assets. Between now and May 30, JPMorgan Chase & Co. will match the contributions to the Central Park Conservancy made by Corporate Challenge participants. Corporate Challenge entrants should visit www.centralparknyc.org/JPMChase to join the Conservancy’s individual or corporate membership programs, and learn more about volunteer opportunities in Central Park.
The Central Park Conservancy is the beneficiary of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, and more than 700 companies will take part this year. Those companies can also get involved in supporting Central Park by taking part in the Conservancy’s Volunteer Programs.
The Central Park Conservancy is a natural fit into the Corporate Challenge’s Teaming Up For A Greener Tomorrow program, which strives to make the Corporate Challenge the greenest road race in the world while educating participants on the value of best environmental practices.
The Central Park Conservancy is a private not-for-profit organization, responsible for managing and preserving Central Park for present and future generations. The Conservancy raises 85 percent of the Park’s $27 million annual operating budget through private donations. In fact, since 1980 the Conservancy has invested more than $500 million in Central Park.
