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 makes contributions in areas that we believe are important to the future of our nation's vitality and success. Our first priority is to support programs and organizations whose chief purpose is to benefit low- and moderate-income individuals and families. We look for projects that keep our communities strong, diverse, and vibrant.

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
  • Provide job training and workforce development
  • Revitalize and stabilize communities

Education

We support organizations that:

  • Promote academic achievement for low- and moderate-income students
  • Provide training for teachers and administrators who work with low- and moderate-income students
  • Encourage school partnerships with parents and guardians, the local community, and the business community

Human Services

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

  • Provide basic needs assistance
  • Give access to community services and education
  • Assist children and families

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

Financial Education

The success of every community depends on their ability to increase their financial and educational resources. Wells Fargo is committed to the cause of financial education by providing several tools that enhance classroom and extracurricular activities for youth and continued education for adults.
