Wells Fargo Commits $35 Million In Support Of Military Service Members, Veterans; Provides Customers An Opportunity To Support Through ATM Donations

Stocks in this article: WFC

Homeownership

REO donations and support already have been an ongoing part of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage support of organizations such as Military Warriors Support Foundation and Operation Homefront. For a story about how these collaborations work, see this Wells Fargo video.

Here’s how the REO donation program works: Wells Fargo gives properties to the participating nonprofits. In turn, the nonprofits match the properties to veterans according to home requirements and needs. Wells Fargo is not involved with the selection of individual recipients. All veteran applicants are vetted by the nonprofit organizations based on a number of criteria determined by the nonprofits. Those interested in applying to receive an REO property should apply through the participating nonprofits at www.militarywarriors.org or www.operationhomefront.net.

Nonprofits with a history of providing housing for veterans that are interested in receiving homes from Wells Fargo can send inquiries to: REODonationProgram@wellsfargo.com for more details.

Career Transition

Wells Fargo recently formed alliances with American Corporate Partners (ACP), 100,000 Jobs Mission and Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) to help mentor and hire veterans and military spouses. Organization details include:

American Corporate Partners (ACP)

The program is open to those who have served on active duty since 2001, including National Guardsmen and Reservists. Those interested can learn more about ACP and where to apply at: www.acp-usa.org.
