Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo® counts youth mentoring among its long list of charitable causes. With a focus on a better tomorrow, they continue to lead the charge toward a world of opportunity for all.

Dave Kvamme, Retired Minnesota CEO of Wells Fargo, and his wife Sandy, were the 2017 Federated Challenge Honorees. “We’re really proud of the contributions we’ve made to the Federated Challenge and to worthy causes across the state of Minnesota,” Dave said in his Federated Challenge address. “Wells Fargo believes that every kid in Minnesota should have a chance to succeed, and so our hearts go out to everybody that’s here providing your time and your treasures to help the causes of Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the Federated Challenge.

“Wells Fargo has been serving customers in Minnesota for 132 years and we know that in order for our communities to be successful and our customers to be successful, it takes all of us working together to ensure that everybody has the same chances to succeed. Last year, our Minnesota team members donated 163,000 volunteer hours serving non-profits, school districts, and other causes across the state.

“It is through a combination of strategic partnerships, like the Federated Challenge, that all of us have an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of kids and others across the state. We appreciate your support, and for us, it’s been an honor and a privilege to be part of this since its inception.”
