Wells Fargo understands the importance of having a safe and healthy home. Through the Wells Fargo Builds℠ program, Wells Fargo is donating $1.25 million to Rebuilding Together this year!

The contribution is part of a $1 billion commitment made by Wells Fargo in 2019 to address the U.S. affordability housing crisis through 2025. The effort will focus on addressing urgent housing challenges through critical housing repairs that help provide safe, healthy and accessible homes for everyone.

According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, 75 percent of all extremely low-income families are severely cost-burdened, spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs, like essential home repairs.

Wells Fargo is helping address this need by providing essential home repairs in more than 45 communities this year. Together, we are helping homeowners nationwide receive quality critical home repairs at no cost to them and allowing them to remain safe and healthy in their homes.

Since 2010, Wells Fargo has donated more than $16 million to Rebuilding Together and its affiliate network to support rebuilding efforts across the country, including providing essential home repairs, revitalizing communities, and helping veterans, seniors, people with disabilities, families with children and victims of disaster remain in their homes. Last year, Rebuilding Together and Wells Fargo collaborated to deepen the impact in underserved neighborhoods and communities nationwide, bringing tangible assistance to more than 200 neighbors.
