Wells Fargo gives $90,000 to Charlotte-area nonprofits

Wells Fargo said Monday that it will give 90 grants of $1,000 apiece to Charlotte-area nonprofits.

Recipients of the $90,000 in total grants range from the Carolina Raptor Center and a Charlotte cocker spaniel rescue group to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Partnership and Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend.

San Francisco-based Wells Fargo said employees in the bank's branches picked the grant recipients.

"There’s never been a thriving bank in a struggling community," Kendall Alley, Wells Fargo community banking president for the Charlotte region, said in a statement. "We want to recognize these organizations for their partnership and for the positive impacts they are having in our communities.”

The grants come from the bank's Community Partners Program.
