For the JM Financial group of Companies, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goes beyond three words strung
together to signify a statutory obligation. It is a language that binds us in our action – as individuals and
as a group of companies. Our CSR is executed through the JM Financial Foundation(JMFF), our philanthropic arm
established in 2001 in response to the devastating Gujarat earthquake. What started as an initiative to
swiftly extend our hand to those ravaged by a calamity, has over the decades, grown to consistently support
over 35 organizations through CSR and philanthropy, enabling them to serve in the areas of education,
healthcare, disaster relief and animal welfare.
From the year 2014, our CSR initiatives gained structure and began moving towards more systematically planned
interventions,implemented by our Foundation and in partnership with other organizations as well. Under the
visionary leadership of our Group Chairman – Shri Nimesh Kampani, along with an intense involvement of our
employees, our CSR projects have since evolved into scientifically researched, long-term grassroots projects
in three districts in the states of Bihar, Jharkhand and Maharashtra. These projects have been undertaken
in lesser-ventured regions, with two of our project geographies (districts) being identified as Aspirational
Districts by the NITI Aayog. All the CSR initiatives are community-driven, data-based, complementing and
supplementing existing development efforts, aimed at tribal and rural communities under the aegis of Integrated
Rural Transformation Programme.
