Wells Fargo Donates Cash to Mountain View Schools

In total, between the elementary and high school a total of eight schools received grants.

Wells Fargo donated $8,000 to schools in the Mountain View and Los Altos communities this week. The checks were just a small part of the $82,000 of grants given to 82 Peninsula schools at a breakfast in Foster City Tuesday.

Managers of local Wells Fargo branches picked which schools in their towns would receive the grants, each in $1,000 increments.

"In addition to the countless hours that our team members spend volunteering in local schools, we are proud to provide funding directly to schools throughout the Peninsula," said Wendy Haller, president of Wells Fargo’s Peninsula market.

"By hosting this breakfast event and providing funding to schools, we want to personally say ‘thank you’ to the educators in our communities and provide resources to help purchase school supplies or other pressing needs," Haller said.

Since 2009, Wells Fargo has given more than $16 million to educational nonprofits and schools in the Bay Area.
