Wells Fargo Gives Back to Community Groups Dedicated to the Recovery

11/01/2013 BY: ASHLEY R. HARRIS

Wells Fargo & Company recently announced it will donate $6 million across 67 nonprofits through its Leading the Way Home community outreach program to help revitalize and stabilize neighborhoods.

The Priority Markets Initiative of the Leading the Way Home program provides grant support for neighborhood projects located in areas designated for revitalization to help accelerate growth, stability, and investment in distressed areas. Grant recipients are nonprofits actively involved and experienced in community revitalization efforts.

Nonprofits were approved for the grants by the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation to bring additional resources and support to large-scale neighborhood revitalization projects. Priority Markets Initiative grants can be used for any costs associated with the development or redevelopment of the project, but recipients must be IRS501c3 organizations with successful histories of building or renovating housing for low-to-moderate income homebuyers.

“Wells Fargo is bringing much needed support to nonprofits in local communities to help them grow and thrive,” said Kimberly Jackson, executive director of Wells Fargo’s Housing Foundation. “We believe the work of the nonprofit community is a critical conduit to revitalize neighborhoods in cities that have been impacted by the challenging economy.”
