2016 Community Highlights Report

Wells Fargo Advisors St. Louis Community Involvement at a Glance

Diversity & Social Inclusion

Challenging young minds to embrace difference. We are supporting youth initiatives that advance social equity through arts, education and leadership training. Our investments build upon our longstanding support of the arts. Our signature program with the Regional Arts Commission will promote creative thinking, and develop social and financial capability among middle and high school students.

Economic Empowerment

Opening doors of opportunity for young workers. We are collaborating with the United Way of Greater St. Louis to reduce the unemployment rate for individuals between the ages of 16 and 24 through financial education and jobs programs. At Harris-Stowe State University, our funding opened a finance lab this year that will give business students an edge when starting their careers.

Environmental Sustainability

Cultivating healthier neighborhoods. We continue to support institutions whose conservation and educational efforts are invaluable to the health of our city. Our collaboration with Gateway Greening aims will allow for the creation or expansion of 25 neighborhood and school gardens to build connections and improve health throughout our city.

Elder Financial Protection

Safeguarding the legacy of older generations. We are supporting agencies and non-profits working to identify and stop financial exploitation that can deplete the life savings of older adults. Our support will help caregiving organizations protect our elders from becoming targets of scams and financial abuse, and stop exploitation when it occurs.
