Wells Fargo is proud to support organizations that work to strengthen our communities. We look for projects that keep our communities strong, diverse, and vibrant. Through the volunteer efforts of our enthusiastic team members and our contributions, we share our success with the communities in which we live and work.

Wells Fargo prefers to fund outcome-driven programs versus unrestricted sponsorships and events for nonprofits. 

In this Funding Cycle, Wells Fargo makes grants in the following focus areas:


We support organizations and programs that: 

  • Work to eliminate the K–12th grade achievement gap in public education through curriculum-based school programs 
  • Facilitate merit-based access to higher education for underrepresented groups

Arts and Culture 

  • Arts and culture, science, and history organizations that advance education 
  • Access and participation in cultural experiences for the broader community


  • Preserve our environment through education programs
