Overview:

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.

Wells Fargo makes contributions in areas that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success. We direct our contributions to non-profit organizations that work to advance the following focus areas.

For this funding cycle, applications are accepted in the following focus areas: 

Primary focus areas:

Education

  • Addressing the pre-K – 12th grade achievement gap through interventions that occur in partnership with the students’ school and with a focus on low- and moderate-income students.
  • Out of School Time programs that provide academic enrichment using proven and scalable methods in the areas of STEAM, leadership development, career and college readiness.
  • Programs that are trauma-informed and delivered with an equity lens are prioritized.

Secondary Focus Areas: 

Environment:

  • Preserving our environment through education programs that expose k-12 students to sustainability issues, green practices, and conserving our natural resources.
