Wells Fargo’s Community Connection Grant Program is an annual program where each of the company’s retail banking stores and Business Banking teams explore the needs of their local communities, and select a nonprofit organization or school to receive a $1,000 grant. This year, Wells Fargo will award more than $600,000 in grants to 600-plus nonprofit organizations and schools throughout Florida.
The grants are part of the company’s broader support of its communities. In 2015, Wells Fargo invested more than $12 million in nonprofit organization and schools, and team members volunteered 90,000 hours across the state.
“At Wells Fargo, we’re committed to supporting programs and organization that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success,” said Ivelis Varela. “So we are proud to support National Veterans Homeless Support with this grant.”
