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 two primary areas:

Community Development

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

  • Create and sustain affordable housing
  • Facilitate financial literacy and empowerment
  • Provide job training and workforce development
  • Revitalize and stabilize communities


We support organizations that promote academic achievement for low- and moderate-income students by:

  • Eliminating the pre-K – 12th grade achievement gap in public education through curriculum-based or school-sponsored programs
  • Facilitating merit-based access to higher education for underrepresented groups
  • Advance teaching through recruitment, professional development, support, and retention of teachers

Wells Fargo also considers grants in the following areas:

Arts and Culture

  • We consider requests from organizations that work to enhance community diversity through:
  • Access to and participation in cultural experiences for low- and moderate-income individuals
  • Availability of a broad array of artistic opportunities and venues that reflect the community’s diversity

Civic Engagement

We consider requests from organizations that work to enhance a community’s quality of life through projects involving:

  • Public policy
  • Community beautification
  • Civic leadership
  • Citizen education
  • Cultural diversity


We consider requests from organizations whose primary purpose is:

  • Preservation and conservation of natural resources
