National grants

We focus our philanthropy on three key areas: housing affordability, financial health, and small business growth. We’re committing $1 billion over the next six years to help American families find safe, affordable homes. In 2020, we're implementing a $20 million Housing Affordability Breakthrough Innovation Challenge. It's bringing forward new housing affordability ideas in the areas of finance, construction and residential support services.

If you would like to apply for one of our national grants, begin by introducing your organization to the Wells Fargo representative most relevant to the sector you serve. All national grants require an invitation code to use in our online application. If you have questions, see our giving FAQs.

Team member volunteering and giving

Part of what makes Wells Fargo unique is the generosity of our team members who multiply our community impact. Wells Fargo supports team member volunteering by offering 16 hours of paid volunteer time each year. In 2018, more than 96,000 team members volunteered more than 2 million hours for charitable organizations worldwide. This volunteer time is equivalent to $50.8 million according to a valuation of volunteer hours by the Independent Sector, a U.S. coalition of more than 500 philanthropic organizations.

Volunteer groups: Today, more than 91,000 team members – or about one-third of the entire company – actively participate in volunteer chapters, green teams, and team member networks.

Community Care grants: Through this program, team members can qualify for grants by taking action and giving their time, talent, and financial support to charities around the world.

Global Fellows Volunteer program: Each year, 12 team members are selected to participate in Wells Fargo’s Global Fellows Volunteer program. The program, which is part of Grameen Foundation's Bankers without Borders® initiative, provides volunteer consultants to microfinance or social-enterprise organizations focused on alleviating poverty in communities outside the U.S.

Wells Fargo BuildsSM program: Each year, thousands of team members volunteer to build, renovate, paint, or repair hundreds of affordable homes for families and individuals in need.
