In October, Wells Fargo celebrated another successful employee-giving campaign with their team members pledging $69.7 million to 30,000 nonprofits and volunteering 300,000 hours during the one-month campaign.
When campaign dollars are combined with contributions made throughout the year, team members donated more than $98 million in 2015 to causes they are passionate about. This support of time, talent, and financial donations helps tens of thousands of nonprofits to further their missions and improve the lives of many throughout local communities.
“Our team members care deeply about their communities and want them to be successful,” Wells Fargo Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said of the company’s annual Community Support Campaign. “We cherish our longtime culture of focusing on building sustainable communities and volunteering our time with nonprofits.”
Just one example of Wells Fargo team members demonstrating their caring culture included CEO Stumpf volunteering with 33 other team members at St. Anthony’s in San Francisco in late July. St. Anthony’s serves about 3,000 meals every day to the homeless, those living in shelters, low-income residents trying to stretch limited dollars, and anyone else in need. The nonprofit relies on volunteer support, including many volunteers from Wells Fargo. In addition, the company has donated more than $660,000 to St. Anthony’s since 2002. Some of that money helped build the reception area at St. Anthony’s new location in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco.
Wells Fargo manages an open Community Support Campaign, enabling team members to give to any valid nonprofit, school, or religious institution. Wells Fargo has managed the largest workplace-giving campaign in the U.S. for the past six consecutive years, according to United Way Worldwide.
Congratulations Wells Fargo!
