Wells Fargo Team Member Volunteer Program

Trading ‘Money for Muscle’, Wells Fargo’s Team Member Volunteer Program provides volunteer and financial support to nonprofit organizations when Wells Fargo team members help build, renovate, paint or repair a home for low-to moderate-income (LMI) people.

If you are a 501c3 public charity providing these kinds of volunteer opportunities you may be eligible for support.

Here’s how the program works
  1. Reach out to your local Wells Fargo contact and tell them about the project you have in the works. Ask the Wells Fargo contact if they are interested in putting together a volunteer team and applying for a Team Member Volunteer Program (TMVP) grant. The Wells Fargo team member can then complete a TMVP application if they have volunteers to assist in a build.
  2. Don’t have a local contact? No problem. Stop by your local Wells Fargo store in the community where you have your project and invite them to participate. If they agree, they can submit a TMVP application to the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation on your behalf.

While eligibility is a first step towards approval, it does not guarantee support. The Wells Fargo Housing Foundation receives many more requests than it can possibly support. Consequently, we must turn down many deserving projects.

How much money is that muscle worth?
It depends on how many hours you need the muscle. The more they volunteer, the more they earn for you.
