About this funder:



NOTE:  Funding requests are accepted anytime from January through the deadline above. 

We appreciate your interest in Wells Fargo's philanthropic goals and objectives. At Wells Fargo, we believe that grant-making decisions are more effective when made locally. That's why Wells Fargo is actively involved in the communities where we live and work, and why our team members are leaders in helping our communities succeed.

Our Giving Priorities

Wells Fargo is proud to support organizations that keep our communities strong, diverse, and vibrant.

Evolving our Strategic Philanthropy Approach

More focused giving + priorities = deeper, more measurable community impact

We have refined our strategic focus areas that we can have the greatest impact in assisting and improving our communities as follows:

  • Education 
    • Early Learning and Literacy 
    • Closing the Achievement Gap 
    • Post-Secondary College/Career Readiness
  • Community Development 
    • Affordable Housing 
    • Access to Economic Opportunity 
    • Homelessness 
    • Hunger

Rural community programs and projects will be taken into consideration that fall out of the scope of these highlighted priorities so we can continue to support varying geographic needs.

Through a combination of strategic relationships with local and national nonprofits, grants, volunteer activities, and other community investments, we’re creating solutions that help strengthen the communities in which we operate and grow local economies.
