JPMorgan Chase & Co. is giving $1 million to two anti-hate groups to help mend the nation’s rifts after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The money will be split between the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League, according to a Monday memo from Peter Scher, the New York-based bank’s head of corporate responsibility. The bank will also start a new program to match employee donations to human rights organizations for as much as an additional $1 million.
