Greater Twin Cities United Way announced a $1.3 million grant from Wells Fargo to support United Way programs and nonprofit partners. Over the past five years, Wells Fargo has provided $6.5 million in grants improving household stability and economic opportunity for people and families experiencing poverty in our region.
This grant will help nearly 17,000 individuals by providing:
- Crisis resources for nearly 5,000 callers through United Way 2-1-1
- Stable housing for over 300 youth and families
- Groceries and meals for nearly 11,000 people
- Job training for more than 200 low-income adults
“Wells Fargo’s commitment to the community is inspiring,” said Trent Blain, interim president and CEO of Greater Twin Cities United Way. “We are grateful for our partnership and we look forward to continuing to work together to make the Greater Twin Cities a region where everyone thrives, regardless of income, race or place of residence.”
United Way Worldwide recently recognized Wells Fargo as its No. 1 Workplace Giving Campaign for 10 consecutive years. Over the past decade, Wells Fargo and its team members across the country have donated more than $713 million, and just last year, logged 31,000 volunteer hours.
