Reviewer 675 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

You should have a bank manager be the one who initiates the request. We banked with WF, so we had the branch manager initiate the request and then we filled out the online request form.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Responsive

For a company of this size I'm surprised at how poorly organized this foundation is. The local branch in a fairly large Minnesota city had no clue what I was talking about. After they finally tracked down a phone number it took about a week for me to hear back from them and then I was told they only fund within Minneapolis. For a financial institution that has so many branches throughout Minnesota I found it very discouraging that they have no funding program for out-state Minnesota. I have banked with Wells Fargo for more than 20 years and was very disappointed.

Cons

Not worth the time to pitch
