Community Giving

Helping to build a more inclusive, sustainable future for all

Wells Fargo is committed to building an inclusive, sustainable recovery for all through a focus on opening pathways to economic advancement, championing safe, affordable homes, empowering small businesses to thrive, and enabling a just, low-carbon economy.

Supporting our communities

Through our businesses and the Wells Fargo Foundation, we align our resources and expertise to make a positive impact in communities, address complex societal issues, and help build a more inclusive, sustainable future for all.

We provide grants to nonprofit organizations working to strengthen the resiliency of our communities and our planet with a focus on supporting nonprofits that strategically align with our funding priorities: financial health, housing affordability, small business growth, and sustainability and environmental justice. 

We prioritize funding to activities and programs that have a broad reach and impact several geographical areas, communities, and/or groups. We also focus on supporting the needs of underserved communities and advancing racial equity.

National priorities

Wells Fargo and the Wells Fargo Foundation collaborate with a wide range of nonprofit organizations that align with our strategic funding priorities. We prioritize our funding to activities and programs that have a broad reach and impact several geographical areas, communities, and/or groups. We also focus on the needs of underserved communities and advancing racial equity.

Local community grants

We support our communities through grants to local nonprofits that align with our four strategic focus areas, though we may consider grants in support of other local community needs and initiatives. Priority is placed on nonprofit programming supporting low- to moderate-income communities, addressing racial and social equity, and accelerating an inclusive economy.

Employee volunteerism and giving

Part of what makes Wells Fargo's philanthropy program so robust is the generosity of our employees who multiply our community impact, locally and collectively. Each year, eligible employees receive 16 hours of paid volunteer time to give back to local communities where they live and work. Wells Fargo provides an innovative and comprehensive portfolio of volunteer opportunities that allows for employees across the globe to engage where and how they want.

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

Global Fellows Volunteer program: Our Global Fellows Program is a virtual volunteering initiative with the Grameen Foundation's Bankers without Borders®. This effort seeks to accelerate the social and economic progress of business and entrepreneurs in under-resourced communities around the world, while providing employees with an opportunity to develop leadership skills and enhance cultural competencies with international organizations addressing poverty.

Wells Fargo BuildsSM program: Thousands of employees have volunteered to build, renovate, paint, and repair affordable homes with low- and moderate-income families and individuals in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity International and Rebuilding Together.

Workplace giving: Wells Fargo encourages employees to contribute to the communities where they live and work. The company facilitates employee donations year-round and amplifies the donation impact through the Community Care Grants program. Through this program, employees can qualify for grants for giving and service activities, and then direct the funds to eligible charities of their choice.
