United Way Worldwide has recognized Wells Fargo and Company for leading the largest workplace giving campaign in the U.S. last year. This will be Wells Fargo’s sixth-consecutive year of earning this honor.
“Wells Fargo is leading by example when it comes to engaging their employees in creating meaningful change,” said Brian A. Gallagher, president and CEO of United Way Worldwide. “Whether they’re donating money, giving their time as volunteers or raising their voices in support of others, Wells Fargo team members are making a real difference — especially in the area of financial stability and workforce development. This is an inspiring example of how corporate partners are working with United Way to change lives.”
During the company’s month-long Community Support and United Way giving campaign, Wells Fargo team members pledged $70.5 million, a 9 percent increase from 2013, and the twelfth-consecutive year-over-year increase.
