As a major corporation in the modern business world, Wells Fargo maintains a commitment to corporate social responsibility through a number of community-based giving programs. It’s primary platforms focus on goals such as social inclusion; the creation of a low-carbon, environmentally friendly economy; and economic empowerment in underserved communities.
Some of the corporation’s philanthropic efforts also focus specifically on the needs of military veterans, providing assistance like grants, financial education, and job search tools to members of the United States military who have transitioned to civilian life. This commitment was evident in December of 2016, when Wells Fargo donated a mortgage-free home in North Haverhill, New Hampshire, to retired Army Ranger Jeremy Dolan, who was injured during his second tour in Afghanistan. Mr. Dolan and his wife will live in the home with their infant daughter and two dogs.
