Wells Fargo recognizes Washington nonprofitsPublished 8:03pm Thursday, October 24, 2013
Beaufort County Schools Education Foundation and Ruth’s House were recognized today each with a $1,000 grant as part of Wells Fargo’s Community Partners program.
Through the program, employees from Wells Fargo’s Washington Square and Washington waterfront stores each selected a group that is delivering important services in the community.
“Wells Fargo has a long, proud history of community involvement and local decision making,” said Kate Phelps, Washington market president for Wells Fargo. “We look for ways to partner with organizations to help address local needs and become involved in the community.”
The grants came from the Wells Fargo Foundation. Founded in 1852 and headquartered in San Francisco, Wells Fargo provides banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance through more than 9,000 stores, 12,000 ATMs, and the Internet (wellsfargo.com), and has offices in more than 35 countries to support the bank’s customers who conduct business in the global economy.
