Delta recipients of grants from the 20th annual Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund were announced today by Tina Jessee, Wells Fargo's market president and Business Banking manager for Delta. Eight locally based non-profit organizations received the donations totaling $4,000.
"An important part of what makes Delta such a great community is the hard work and dedication of the many small, grassroots organizations based here," said Jessee. "We know these organizations often don't have the resources for fundraising initiatives and we want to show them we appreciate what they do on behalf of all of us. We're pleased to be able to make these special contributions as part of our overall investment in Delta."
Receiving grants were All American Families, CASA of the Seventh Judicial District, Creamery Arts Center, Delta County Meth Task Force, Delta County School District - Garnet Mesa Elementary School, Delta County Young Life, Girls on the Run of the Grand Valley and Haven House.
Statewide, more than 200 qualified, community-based non-profit organizations in Colorado will receive funding in 2013 from Wells Fargo through the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund. Eligible organizations must be certified 501(c)(3) and have an annual budget of $350,000 or less.
The Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund was started in 1993 to provide greatly needed support to small, non-profit groups that don't have the resources to compete with larger organizations for community support dollars. Since its inception, more than 4,000 grants totaling more than $3.9 million have been awarded.blog comments powered by Disqus
