BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Wells Fargo Foundation has provided a $20,000 grant to support fund development and the continuation of existing program services at the Birmingham Urban League. This grant will help the Urban League continue its direct services to youth and adults through programs and initiatives that promote:

the opportunity to earn – workforce development/job training
the opportunity to own – comprehensive housing counseling services
the opportunity to prosper – financial education seminars

“Wells Fargo’s investment signals to us that our constituents and the areas in which we work are important to this industry leader and align with their corporate goals,” said Elaine S. Jackson, Urban League President & CEO. “Wells Fargo has not only provided financial contributions, but they’ve also given consistent volunteer support through service on our Board of Directors for a number of years.”
“The Urban League does great work in the Birmingham community,” said Richard Busby, senior community development officer for Wells Fargo, and board member of the Urban League. “We are proud to support their efforts to help people across our community succeed in the areas of financial stability, homeownership and
employment.”
