Wells Fargo Invests Almost $9 Million in New England in 2019
NEC member Wells Fargo recently reported that the company invested over $8.9 million in New England last year through charitable giving an volunteer work.
From donating to organizations that provide affordable housing for Massachusetts residents, to startup support for diverse entrepreneurs and small business owners, the bank provided support to causes and organizations across the region. In addition, Wells Fargo hosted summits and forums to support and highlight work being done to empower communities served by the bank and the importance of diversity in and out of the boardroom. At the grassroots level, employees of the bank collaborated to build playgrounds, help feed students facing food insecurity in Boston Public Schools, and make activity kits for critically ill children.
“We want to be No. 1 in corporate citizenship and make a positive impact in every community in which we live and do business,” said Jon R. Campbell, Executive Vice President of Wells Fargo. “One of the taproots of corporate citizenship is philanthropy: engaging individuals and contributing to communities in a way that drives measurable social impact.”
The Council is grateful to Wells Fargo for their generosity and contributions to our region. Read the stories of the bank’s involvement here.
