Wells Fargo Point Scholarship

Wells Fargo strives to be a leader in workplace equality and philanthropic endeavors supporting education and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. It was ranked in 2007 by BusinessWeek as one of the country’s top ten biggest givers in corporate philanthropy and by DiversityInc magazine as the 31st best company for diversity. For the past six years, Wells Fargo has received a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s “Corporate Equality Index.”

In 2008, Wells Fargo received the Point Inspiration Award, which recognizes a corporation that champions respect and inclusion of the LGBT community and lives with the vision that investing in today’s potential will produce a brighter tomorrow. The company has donated funds to the Point Foundation for 10 Point scholarships that are awarded to undergraduate students.
