Kimberly Davis, President of JPMorgan Chase Foundation

Fast Company recently touted JPMorgan Chase Foundation president Kimberly Davis as one of this year's 'Most Creative People' as they wrote:
When Kimberly Davis flew from New York to San Diego to announce the $1 million recipient of JPMorgan Chase's crowdsourced philanthropy competition, the winners waiting for her on the other end weren't expecting much -- a buttoned-up figurehead, maybe, who would breeze in for 20 minutes, shaking hands and kissing babies for the cameras. "But she showed up at 6 a.m. and talked to every single volunteer about what they did at the organization," says Laren Poole, cofounder of Invisible Children. "It was so clear that she's the heartbeat behind the whole thing. She got it in a way that I didn't expect."
There are many JPMC employees in BDPA. I hope that many of them find a way to support BDPA Education and Technology Foundation in the weeks and months to come.
