Wells Fargo’s commitment to our communities is a core part of our Vision & Values. We collaborate with our team members and organizations across the country to promote long-term economic prosperity and quality of life for everyone in our communities. That’s why we donate nearly a quarter of a billion dollars in charitable contributions to nonprofits annually.

Wells Fargo believes in empowering women to succeed financially both in business and personally. In 1995, Wells Fargo launched Women’s Business Services to provide outreach and education to help women business owners reach their financial goals. To date, Wells Fargo has loaned more than $35 billion to hundreds of thousands of women business owners, helping one of the fastest growing segments of the nation’s economy achieve their business goals. Women’s Business Services works with key local and national organizations to support the growth of the women’s business community, including the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the Center for Women’s Business Research (CWBR).
