It takes a web of interlocking partners to develop and sustain healthy, vibrant communities. None of us can do it alone. That’s why one of our core competencies is forging creative collaborations that match our assets with the strengths of others to maximize the benefits for the families we all serve.
Wells Fargo’s commitment to support homeowners and stabilize communities is making a difference in communities across the nation. Since 2012, NeighborWorks has collaborated with Wells Fargo on the LIFT program

Since 2008, Wells Fargo Housing Foundation has provided more than 1,500 scholarships for community development professionals
to attend NeighborWorks America’s specialized training, equipping participants to make an impact on the communities they serve. This represents a $5 million investment by the foundation in community development.
Thanks to JPMorgan Chase Foundation’s commitment, we are offering a continuum of strategies to promote financial capability and successful, sustainable homeownership for people of modest means in every state.

In 2010, NeighborWorks America and the Citi Foundation launched the Financial Capability Demonstration Project
, a national multi-year initiative to expand and strengthen financial capability programs for low- and moderate- income individuals and families. Citi and the Citi Foundation continue to support NeighborWorks’ efforts to innovate and transform the community development field.
