Partners in the mission
Thank you for helping us celebrate World Habitat Day and for joining Habitat for Humanity as sponsors of the 27th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.

We recognize the following corporate partners for their contributions and vision for a better world:

Supporting sponsor

Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo leads sponsorship of the Carter Work Project with a $750,000 contribution and 150 volunteers building in six cities.

Wells Fargo and Habitat for Humanity share a vital goal: to make the dream of homeownership available, affordable and sustainable for the health and vitality of our communities. Wells Fargo has provided Habitat affiliates with $58 million and more than 4 million volunteer hours since 1993.

In 2010, Wells Fargo joined Habitat as a national partner with an $8 million contribution to support Habitat capacity building, as well as Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative to construct, repair and rehabilitate affordable housing for low-income families in markets hit hard by foreclosures.
