Community-based financial services company Wells Fargo has made a $3,000 contribution to the Cultural Alliance of York County annual campaign, working to raise $1 Million in 2018 to support artists and arts organizations that bring meaningful arts experiences to thousands of community members each year.

“We could not bring arts and culture to life throughout York County without corporate partners like Wells Fargo,” stated Jennifer Glassmyer, Cultural Alliance Annual Campaign Director.  “Funds from our annual campaign make arts experiences and arts education possible for employees and their families across York County, and make York County a vibrant place to live, work and play.  We are grateful to Wells Fargo for supporting arts and culture in York.”

This is an increase in support from Wells Fargo to the Cultural Alliance Annual Campaign. Thanks to an anonymous pool of donors, all new contributions are matched dollar for dollar, increasing the impact of their investment.
