The month of September shines a light on the importance of lifting up our communities. Every community has different needs, and those who live there know them best. During the Community Support Campaign, you’re encouraged to get involved in ways that work for you by giving the gift of your time, talent, or financial support to causes and charities addressing community needs you care most about.
This year, you can make a bigger impact in your community, because your gifts of time and money during the Community Support Campaign can be amplified by Wells Fargo Community Care Grants.
When you volunteer or give through the campaign, you can qualify for Community Care Grants of up to $2,000 per year, which you can direct to any of the 100,000+ eligible charities you feel passionate about. So whatever you do can help more.
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 charitable organizations to support, including schools and religious organizations. The portal is accessible on your mobile device through Channel Secure at http://tmgiving.wf.com.
There are many ways to support your communities:
During the campaign, you can give to as many charities as you like that are listed in the portal, knowing that 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity of your choice. When you pledge during the campaign, Wells Fargo pays all administrative and processing costs.
Last year, team members pledged an incredible $75.36 million to charities during the Community Support Campaign, including more than $105,000 raised by team members outside the United States. During September, more than 30,000 team members volunteered in excess of 241,000 hours (that amounts to $5.95 million!) in communities worldwide; $997,000 was raised for the WE Care Fund; 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 tenth year in a row. Our campaign is a success because of team members like you, who, through your enthusiasm, caring, and generous support, help meet important community needs. Consider donating in September.
