In line with our values, we realize that we can only thrive in a society where we give back and utilize our resources to support our communities and protect the environment by joining in the conservation efforts.
We pay close attention to the issues that are important to our stakeholders, employees, customers and the community. Those that directly or indirectly touch on our operations such as environmental protection and fair and equal employment opportunities rank top most. We marry this with our resolve to continuously empower women in our society as well as fund small businesses for community development.
Every Chase employee intrinsically believes that our CSR objective is linked to the goals of the institution – to be good corporate citizens, to be a great place for customers to enhance their financial partnerships, to be a good work place, and to be a positive influence in the communities we serve. As a result, the Chase Group Foundation has been established to identify the social, environmental and ethical issues that affect our business, raise awareness and build our employees commitment.
We aim to build stronger and healthier communities through our strategic social investments in Women and the Environment.
AMREF - Stand Up For African Mothers Initiative
Did you know that 200,000 mothers die every year due to a lack of simple medical care? The Chase Foundation aims to raise funds for this initiative, so we can collectively contribute to reducing maternal mortality by 25%.
We at Chase Bank thank you, our community, for your continued support, loyalty and faith in our institution. The Bank continues to engage in corporate social investments that seek to give back to the society we operate in. On 9th February 2013, the Chase Group staff and community hosted a 10 KM charity walk in the Ngong Road Forest Sanctuary to raise funds to help reduce maternal mortality in Kenya by 25%. This noble initiative was in support of a partnership the Bank has with AMREF named the Stand Up for African Mothers Initiative.
Through AMREF, the funds raised aim to train over 15,000 midwives in Kenya and the region. The Chase Group staff sold T-shirts and caps to raise funds.
In our journey to becoming a great institution focused on promoting good in our country, you remain an integral part of our success.
