Our goal is to help enable long-lasting, sustainable housing to veterans; help active duty service members and their spouses with career transition; and provide financial education and resources specifically for military families.
We are in your neighborhood, working with you to help improve and grow your community through various programs and sponsorships.
- The SBA Veterans Pledge Initiative aims to increase the number of veteran small business entrepreneurs served by 2,000 or 5 percent annually through 2018. Wells Fargo is among the participating lenders who support the SBA's efforts to approve more SBA loans for military veteran small business entrepreneurs who seek financing and are ready to use credit for their business.
- Wells Fargo supports Warriors to Summits, a program of No Barriers USA, whose mission is to unleash the potential of the human spirit. The program empowers veterans and transitioning service members with disabilities, and survivors of the fallen, to overcome barriers and unleash their potential. Their experiences serve as both an opportunity for growth and catalyst for change as these brave men and women stretch boundaries, build teams, innovate through adversity and step up to lead and serve others. Complementing the reintegration process, this program provides quality transformative experiences that inspire warriors to grow and continue to contribute their absolute best to the world.
After years of living in on-base housing, in barracks, or in tents, having a place to call home should be a possibility. With the help of many dedicated organizations, we're developing programs to help make sustainable homeownership attainable.
- We have donated more than $50 million dollars, including more than 220 property donations and support, to qualifying non-profits that serve veterans and their families.
- Those interested in applying for one of these homes should apply through these participating nonprofits: Military Warrior Support Foundation and Operation Homefront.
