Chase to Donate up to $500,000 for Oklahoma Tornado Relief

17:43 EDT Tuesday, May 21, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY (Business Wire) -- Chase will donate up to $500,000 to support Oklahoma as residents begin the difficult recovery after tornadoes swept through Moore and communities near the capital city Monday.

Chase will make grants of $350,000 and match employee donations up to $150,000. The grants will be distributed to these relief agencies:

  • American Red Cross - $75,000
  • World Vision - $75,000
  • Convoy of Hope - $100,000
  • United Way of Central Oklahoma - $100,000

“Each of these fine organizations are working tirelessly to respond to the devastation in our community,” said David Page, president of Chase in Oklahoma. “Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors who have been impacted by this terrible storm.”

Consumers can donate at ATMs: Starting later this week, consumers can donate $5 to the American Red Cross at 14,000 Chase ATMs across the country.

Waiving Fees: To help customers, Chase will waive many fees for customers across Cleveland, Lincoln, McClain, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties. Through June 4, Chase is proactively:

  • Waiving Overdraft Protection Transfer, Extended Overdraft, Returned Item and Insufficient Funds fees as well as non-Chase ATM fees on deposit accounts
  • Waiving late and insufficient funds fees on credit cards, business and consumer loans, including mortgages, home-equity, auto and student loans

Longer hours, key supplies. Chase will extend branch hours at branches near the impacted area. The five branches closest to Moore will have bottled water, power strips, extension cords, flashlights, batteries, coolers and other supplies to share with customers.

“We will do our part to help our resilient neighbors as they show such tremendous courage in the face of adversity,” said Carrie Boyles, senior vice president and head of the 30 Chase branches across Oklahoma.
