School districts in Oregon, Idaho and Clark County to benefit from new Wells Fargo checking account offer
— November 4, 1999
Good little children won't be the only ones benefiting from this year's season of giving. Wells Fargo will give a helping hand to local school districts in Oregon, Idaho and Clark County, Wash.
From Nov. 14 to the end of this year, Wells Fargo will donate $10 to the school districts for each new checking account that consumers open in those areas with a minimum of $100.
"We want to do as much as we can for our schools and education in the Northwest and this is one more way we felt we could help out," said George Passadore of Portland, Wells Fargo's Regional President.
Wells Fargo will present the donations to the school districts in January 2000. The grants will be in addition to the more than $7.5 million that Wells Fargo has donated to schools and non-profit organizations in the Northwest since 1996.
Founded in 1852, Wells Fargo & Company is a $207-billion diversified financial services company providing banking, insurance, investments, mortgage and consumer finance through almost 6,000 stores and other distribution channels across North America, including all 50 states, and elsewhere internationally.
