The month of September shines a light on how important lifting up our communities is for our team members. It gives all of us the opportunity to re-affirm our commitment to those communities where we live and work, and the causes that we are passionate about through personal giving and volunteering.
The decision to give is a personal choice; how and what you give is up to you. Through the Community Support Campaign’s Community Care Portal, you can find more than 2 million nonprofit organizations — including schools and religious organizations — to support.
There are many ways we can re-affirm our commitment to our communities:
During the campaign, you can give to as many charities as you like that are in the portal, knowing that 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit of your choice. When you pledge during the campaign, Wells Fargo pays all the administrative and processing costs. Through the Wells Fargo Educational Matching Gifts Program, Wells Fargo also matches gifts made to eligible schools and educational foundations, from $25 to up to $5,000 per team member. When pledging through the campaign, simply select “Apply Match and Check Out” before completing your online pledge.
Last year, team members pledged an incredible $85 million to 40,000 nonprofits during the Community Support Campaign, including more than $314,000 raised by team members outside the United States. Team members volunteered more than 215,000 hours (that amounts to $5.1 million!) in communities; $1.27 million was pledged to the WE Care Fund; more than $1.24 million was raised for disaster relief efforts, and, over $273,000 was donated by team members to the United Way Community Education Fund. Wells Fargo was named United Way Worldwide's No. 1 workplace giving campaign in the U.S. for the ninth year in a row. We're excited to continue this amazing support and once again re-affirm our commitment to the communities we serve.
Our campaign is a success because of team members like you, who, through your enthusiasm, caring, and generous support, bring hope to our communities. Consider donating in September.
