About this funder:



NOTE: The Utah Region accepts applications from January 1 to the deadline above. However, we recommend that you submit as early in the year as possible.

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. In addition to programs offering financial support, Wells Fargo has built an internal culture of giving back to our communities through the promotion of volunteerism among our team members. Through the volunteer efforts of our enthusiastic team members and our contributions, we share our success with the communities in which we live and work.

While we make grants in four primary areas: Community Development, Education, Human Services and Civic/Cultural/Arts we are also supportive of those nonprofit organizations for which Wells Fargo team members have made a commitment to volunteer via direct service or through committee or Board membership.

Wells Fargo makes grants in four primary areas:

Community Development

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

  • Create and sustain affordable housing
  • Revitalize and stabilize communities
  • Teach financial literacy


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

Human Services

Wells Fargo accepts requests for support of human service organizations and gives priority to those whose work primarily benefits low and moderate – income individuals. Health charities are considered, but their priority for funding is low.


Wells Fargo considers requests for financial support from organizations that enhance a community’s overall quality of life, including arts programs, cultural festivals, and other activities that help provide opportunities for our community’s diverse residents.
