For decades, Wells Fargo has provided a strong volunteer base at Summer Games, the Iowa State University Football Fundraiser and many other events and competitions. Wells Fargo became a Premier Statewide Partner in 2014, and hundreds of volunteers make the track and field events at Summer Games a success. During Wells Fargo volunteer fairs throughout the year, employees are eager to learn about new ways to get involved.
Through the Wells Fargo Foundation, more than $60,000 has been granted to Special Olympics Iowa over the years, in addition to thousands of dollars of support through employee payroll deductions and donations to events by local branches in Iowa.
“At Wells Fargo, we are honored to support Special Olympics. We are proud of our team member, Chick Herbert's, dedication to serving on the board and we are pleased to provide foundation grants and Wells Fargo volunteers. Thank you Special Olympics for your long history of supporting very special and very talented athletes.” - Don Pearson, Great Plains Region President
