Philanthropy: Wells Fargo (11/25/13)

November 24, 2013 

• Wells Fargo has announced that its team members donated a record $404,000 to nonprofit organizations and schools in Alaska as part of the company's annual Community Support and United Way Campaign in September. This is the highest Community Support Campaign contribution ever by team members in Alaska and a 23 percent increase over last year.

In addition to personal donations, Wells Fargo team members raised funds for local United Way agencies and other charities through silent auctions, casual days, luncheons and other activities. Alaska team members also volunteered during the United Way's "Day of Caring" with organizations such as the AWARE shelter in Juneau, Hope Studios in Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank.

In 2012, Wells Fargo invested $1.6 million in 300 nonprofits and schools in Alaska. Wells Fargo's Alaska team members logged 10,700 volunteer hours in 2012.
