Wells Fargo partners with nonprofit California Forward to boost affordable housing in Golden State
Earlier this year, Wells Fargo committed to donate $1 billion to increase affordable housing nationwide. Specifically, the bank committed $1 billion in philanthropy through 2025 to “address the U.S. housing affordability crisis, including homelessness, available and affordable rentals, transitional housing and home ownership.” The commitment included a focus on creating new affordable housing, and as piece of that effort, Wells Fargo is partnering with California Forward, an affordable housing nonprofit.
