Wells Fargo team members pledged a record 41.9 million dollars to more than 25-thousand nonprofits and schools through its annual Community Support and United Way Campaign. This was a 21 percent increase over the combined Wells Fargo and Wachovia campaigns in 2008. It was also the Company's most "green" campaign to date with nearly 100 percent of all pledges made online and the elimination of nearly all print marketing materials. Over 160-thousand team members participated in the campaign in some way.
The annual Community Support Campaign runs each fall and allows team members to donate to any non-profit organization of their choice and one hundred percent of team member donations go to the organizations they choose. Wells Fargo pays all processing costs and gifts to qualifying schools through the campaign are automatically matched up to five thousand dollars per team member.
