In recognition of Augsburg College’s leadership in closing the higher education disparity gap for students of color in Minnesota, Wells Fargo made a $100,000 gift to the campaign to build the Center for Science, Business, and Religion. Wells Fargo joined several other corporations—including 3M and General Mills—in supporting the CSBR.
Dave Kvamme, CEO of Wells Fargo Minnesota, in a statement expressed admiration for Augsburg’s commitment to partnering with college access programs to help recruit, support, and retain first-generation and low-income students.
“We support Augsburg College’s commitment to provide opportunities for a college education for those students who may face life challenges to attain it,” Kvamme said. “We know our donation will help Augsburg be successful in developing Minnesota’s future business and community leaders.”
