Overview:

NOTE: We accept proposals from January 1 through the deadline above each year. Event sponsorships should be submitted at least 90 days prior to the event.

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 Idaho, 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 by financing small businesses or small farms
  • Provide job training and workforce development
  • Revitalize and stabilize communities

Education

We support organizations that:

  • Promote academic achievement for low- and moderate-income students with a focus on math, literacy, and science and technology
  • Provide training for teachers and administrators working with low- and moderate-income students
  • Encourage school partnerships with parents and guardians, the local community, and the business community

Human Services

We consider proposals 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

Arts and Culture

Wells Fargo also considers proposals from organizations that help enhance a community's quality of life through arts, culture or civic projects, and other activities that provide diverse opportunities for that community’s residents. Areas of particular funding interest are education and arts (museums, theater, opera, symphony, ballet, and all other types of performing or visual arts).
