Wells Fargo is one of Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver’s most committed corporate sponsors and has been a valued partner since 1998. In over two decades of service, they have contributed $1.9 million and over 10,000 volunteer hours in support of our mission, serving thousands of metro Denver families in the process. In the past decade, Wells Fargo has sponsored our Home Repair Program, the Carter Work Project as a platinum donor, and homes in the Sheridan Square development.
In 2021, Wells Fargo will continue its steady and vital support by giving at the $105,000 level and sponsoring three homes at Habitat’s Aria Homes community.
“Far too many people across the country are facing housing instability and one of our key priorities is to create housing affordability solutions where everyone can have a safe and affordable place to call home,” said Shelley Marquez, Wells Fargo’s community relations senior manager, SVP. “We are proud to support Habitat for Humanity in providing homeownership opportunities for hundreds of families nationwide through Wells Fargo Builds.”
Wells Fargo BuildsSM is a philanthropic initiative that has selected Metro Denver as one of more than 220 Habitat affiliates nationwide to receive funding to build homes and hope for local families. This year’s grant to Habitat Denver stems from a $7.75 million donation to Habitat for Humanity International, which itself is a part of a larger $1 billion commitment from the Wells Fargo Foundation to create more housing affordability solutions by 2025.
Thank you, Wells Fargo, for your past contributions, current support, and future commitment to better communities through safe, affordable homes!
