Wells Fargo & Company announced today that its team members donated $3.02 million to nonprofit organizations and schools in Arizona as part of the company’s annual Community Support and United Way Campaign. All donations were funded personally by team members. In addition to a 14 percent year-over-year increase in donations, the one-month campaign also resulted in more than 6,800 team member volunteer hours to 477 nonprofit organizations and schools across the state.
“The engagement, thoughtfulness and caring of our Arizona team members is inspiring,” said Pam Conboy, Arizona lead regional president and state campaign co-chair. “This annual campaign highlights the compassion of our great team members and reinforces that Wells Fargo truly is Arizona’s Community Bank. Our team members’ deep commitment to our community explains why Wells Fargo has been United Way’s No. 1 largest corporate campaign over the past four years nationally.”
The annual Community Support and United Way Campaign encourages team members to give in ways that mean the most to them, whether by going out into the community to volunteer for their favorite nonprofit, or through financial contributions to any nonprofit, school, or religious institution of their choice. One hundred percent of team member donations go to the organizations they choose. Wells Fargo pays all processing costs and matches gifts, up to $5,000 per team member, to qualifying schools.
During this year’s national campaign, team members pledged a record $64.9 million to community nonprofits and schools. Wells Fargo team members invest in nonprofits throughout the year. To-date, including the campaign, team members have donated $89 million of their own dollars to nonprofits, a 13 percent increase over 2012, and the tenth straight year of year-over-year double-digit increases in pledge totals.
