SAMCEDA Member Wells Fargo invested $315.8 million in 19,500 nonprofits in 2012, a 48% increase over the previous year. This increase follows four consecutive years of more than $200 million a year in total corporate giving. In addition to corporate giving, in 2012, 57,036 team members reported more than 1.5 million community involvement and volunteer hours, valued at $32.7 million. “These numbers represent Wells Fargo’s ongoing commitment to providing vital financial resources to the local communities we serve” said John Adams, Wells Fargo Regional Group Head. “Although our economy goes through ups and downs, our longstanding commitment to the communities where our customers live, work, and do business has been a core part of our vision and values since day one.”
