$60.7M contributed to 30k nonprofits during September Community Support Campaign alone
Wells Fargo team members recently pledged $60.7 million to 30,000 charitable organizations and recorded 318,000 volunteer hours during the company’s 2016 Community Support Campaign. This important Wells Fargo initiative, occurring each year in September, encourages the company’s team members to give back to their communities.
This year’s theme was, “Better is Possible. Together, we make it possible.”
For all of 2016, Wells Fargo team members have contributed a total of $98.87 million, both through Community Support Campaign pledges and other donations and pledges made directly to charitable organizations throughout the year. This is comparable to last year’s $98.84 million.
In a company announcement of the campaign results, CEO Tim Sloan said, “I am so proud of the tremendous support that team members provide to our communities. You demonstrated our long-held commitment to communities through your generous donations and by volunteering your time during a challenging period for our company. Your efforts will support and help thousands of people and nonprofits in our communities. This makes ‘better possible’ for so many. Thank you.”
More highlights of Wells Fargo’s Community Support Campaign include:
· 318,000 volunteer hours recorded during September, which is an increase of 18,000 hours from 2015.
· $475,000 donated by team members outside the U.S., which is more than double the $191,000 contributed in 2015.
Congratulations Wells Fargo & Company!
