Wells Fargo recently donated $5,000 to Branches as part of the bank’s commitment to giving back to the community. Wells Fargo believes in making a positive contribution to communities through philanthropy, advancing diversity and inclusion, creating economic opportunity, and promoting environmental sustainability.
Branches is a local non-profit organization based in Miami. By providing life-changing opportunities, Branches helps working poor families and their children break the cycle of generational poverty. Its Grow Program serves elementary students, preparing them for lifelong success through enrichment of their minds, bodies and hearts. The Climb Program serves middle and high school students, focusing on the development of their individual assets in order to maximize opportunities to become better students and better people. Branches’ Achieve Programs target the well-being of the entire community through services fostering financial stability.
The funds from Wells Fargo will help Branches specifically fund its ASSETS program. ASSETS (A Service for Self Employment Training and Support) is Branches’ small business development program and provides a broad range of complimentary business advisory services to help clients tackle business challenges, achieve new levels of growth, as well as create jobs. Branches’ experienced Business Coaches provide one-on-one coaching and consulting services to micro-enterprises in business start-up or business expansion phases.
“With this grant, we are able to help small businesses and families achieve long-term financial stability and independence,” said Brent McLaughlin, Executive Director. “We’re honored to be a partner with Wells Fargo and its associates and sincerely appreciate their desire to remain a concerned corporate citizen by supporting their local communities.”
