Chase partners with The Hip Hop Museum to boost Financial Health nationwide

Collaboration to bring financial health resources to underserved communities across the U.S.

New York, NY, April 23, 2024 – Today, Chase and the Hip Hop Museum announced a multi-year partnership to expand access to banking, and financial health tools and resources in underserved communities across the country.

As the founding and official financial education partner of The Hip Hop Museum, Chase will support the new Hip Hop Museum based in the Bronx. Anchored in the birthplace of Hip Hop culture, The Hip Hop Museum broke ground at the Bronx Point, in 2021 and is scheduled to open its permanent museum location in 2025.  

In addition, the partnership will curate a series of community events – in cities like Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York –  focused on providing financial health education and networking opportunities, and will feature a hip hop touring exhibit, iconic artists, and professional athletes. Chase debit and credit cardholders will receive special benefits and enjoy discounted tickets and other perks at the events.

“Hip Hop transcends the music genre – it stands as a powerful force for economic growth and a catalyst for community empowerment,” said Rocky Bucano, Founding Member and CEO of The Hip Hop Museum. “Our relationship with money and understanding our finances is an important part of setting up individuals and communities for success. We’re proud to partner with Chase to help build financial resilience through Hip Hop.”

Chase will offer complimentary financial health workshops and programming, led by Community Managers, at the new museum when it opens in the Bronx. Programming will focus on issues people care most about, including access to banking and credit, tips for buying their first home or saving for the future. Over the past five years, the bank has hired 150 Community Managers dedicated to increasing access to community resources, banking tools, and  financial advice nationwide.

“Hip Hop embodies community building and empowerment, and financial health is a vital part of this,” said Jason Patton, Northeast Division Director at Chase. “We’re excited to expand our financial health workshops to Hip Hop fans across the county.”

Additionally, Chase partnered with the Hip Hop Museum and its architect, Michael Ford, to commission a mural design – which was inspired by local students –  for its new Community Center Branch located in the Bronx’s Grand Concourse.
