Our success as a company results from the care and compassion of our team members who bring our culture and Vision and Values to life each day. They take care of our customers. They develop innovative and more sustainable ways to run our operations. They unselfishly give their time, talent, and personal financial resources to causes important to them.
In 2015, more than 76,500 team members volunteered a record 1.8 million hours, up 7 percent over 2014. These volunteer hours represent an estimated $43 million in volunteer time (Source: Independent Sector). Learn more about our Wells Fargo Volunteers program.
Annual Community Support Campaign
Each year, during the month of September, Wells Fargo team members donate financially to the nonprofits of their choice, during the Community Support and United Way Campaign. In 2015, our team members set a company record by pledging $98.8 million to nonprofits and schools, including $79.7 million pledged during our annual workplace giving campaign. For the seventh year in a row, we were named United Way Worldwide’s No. 1 workplace giving campaign in the U.S.
In support of our team members’ commitment to strengthening communities, we match individual team members’ financial contributions to eligible schools and educational foundations dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000 per person, per calendar year. In 2015, the company matched more than $24 million of team members’ donations.
