Through its Community Connections Giving Program, Wells Fargo recently presented a $1,000 grant to Montgomery County Community College Foundation. This is the third consecutive year the Foundation has received a grant from Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Giving Program.
Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Giving Program is an annual program where each of its retail banking stores explores the needs of their local communities and selects a nonprofit organization or school to receive a $1,000 grant. This year, Wells Fargo will award more than $300,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations and schools throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware.
The grants are part of the company’s broader support of its communities. In 2015, Wells Fargo and its team members invested more than $11 million in nonprofit organizations and schools and team members volunteered more than 36,000 hours across Pennsylvania.
“At Wells Fargo, we know that small acts can yield huge results, and we are committed to supporting programs and organizations that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success,” said Anthony Gifoli, District Manager, VP of the Eastern Montgomery District. “So we are proud to support Montgomery County Community College with this grant.”
Established in 1983, the Foundation provides student scholarships; grants for faculty projects, equipment and technology; student emergency funds; support for cultural enrichment activities on campus; and financial resources for college programs and activities.
