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 work to strengthen our communities. We look for projects that keep our communities strong, diverse, and vibrant. Our first priority is to support programs and organizations whose chief purpose is to benefit low- and moderate-income individuals and families.

In Arizona, Wells Fargo makes grants in three primary areas: 

Community Development 

We support the improvement of low- and moderate-income communities through programs that: 

  • Create and sustain affordable housing 
  • Promote economic development
  • Provide job training and workforce development
  • Revitalize and stabilize communities


Wells Fargo accepts requests for financial support of educational institutions, as well as for nonprofits whose primary focus is to help these institutions. The primary focus of grant requests should be to promote academic achievement for low and moderate-income students.

Human Services 

We support requests from social and human service organizations that work primarily in low- and moderate-income communities to: 

  • Provide basic needs assistance 
  • Ensure access to health education programs and quality health care
  • Offer child care services

Wells Fargo also considers requests from organizations that help enhance a community’s quality of life through arts, culture, or civic projects.
