As part of our new Partner Spotlight series, we would like to highlight Wells Fargo Bank, our longest-running banking partner, and corporate donor, with a relationship that dates back to the late 1980s. Their foundation gives generously for various activities on an annual basis, and often funds capacity-building activities, most recently to explore new permanent supportive housing projects in Mariposa County. In the last five years, Wells Fargo’s support has amounted to over $125,000 in generous contributions! The funds helped support several of SHE’s community-serving programs. These include our Homeownership Counseling and Education (HCE) program, resident services activities for children, and pandemic relief support.
On the lending side, they have been a subdivision development lender for our mutual self-help housing efforts and a construction period lender for numerous rental housing developments. Wells Fargo has also been an important investor partner for our rental projects utilizing Low Income Housing Tax Credit, including most recently our Sierra Village II (Dinuba) and Los Arroyos (Farmersville) projects, both of which are under construction.
“We appreciate Wells Fargo’s ongoing commitment to SHE,” says Tom Collishaw, President and CEO of SHE. “Their investment in our ongoing programs enables us to continue our mission to sustain healthy homes and communities!”
