Wells Fargo recently announced plans to donate $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity Fresno County.
The donation is part the 2016 Wells Fargo Housing Foundation Priority Markets Program, which will award $6 million across 56 nonprofits. The program provides grant support to large-scale neighborhood revitalization projects to further economic recovery in local communities.
“Wells Fargo is pleased to support these nonprofits that work tirelessly to help revitalize neighborhoods and further their success for the long-term,” Martin Sundquist, executive director of the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation, said in a statement. “The Priority Markets Program has been a catalyst for bringing together community stakeholders with common interests to improve neighborhoods that are producing sustainable results and adding up to make a huge difference for communities.”
Matthew Grundy, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity Fresno County, said serving the affordable housing needs of Fresno County families has been and will continue to be a fundamental priority for the nonprofit, which is proud to partner with Wells Fargo.
“Since our inception, we have been fortunate to have a continuous partnership with Wells Fargo, its team of dedicated volunteers, and its community investment programs that see to it our families in Fresno County matter,” Grundy said in a statement. “For that, I am forever grateful.”
