Wells Fargo Supports 6 HBCU Football Classics

Wells Fargo ranked No. 32 on the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2023.


Wells Fargo will serve as the official banking sponsor of six major football classics between historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

The company will provide $300,000 in scholarships to competing schools and virtual and in-person financial workshops to equip students, alumni and the HBCU community with tools to increase financial health.

Wells Fargo supported three events in September and will sponsor three upcoming games:

  • Florida A&M University Homecoming: FAMU vs. Prairie View A&M University – October 28, 2023
  • Florida Blue Florida Classic: Florida A&M University vs. Bethune‑Cookman University – November 18, 2023
  • Bayou Classic: Southern University vs. Grambling State University – November 25, 2023

“HBCUs nurture the success of our future leaders and create pathways to today’s leading industries such as financial services,” said Gigi Dixon, Head of External Engagement for Diverse Segments, Representation, and Inclusion at Wells Fargo. “Wells Fargo has a long history of supporting HBCUs, and this is another example of this work as we celebrate the HBCU legacy and excellence in sports while providing a platform for learning and growth. Investing in the HBCU community now and in the future is critically important to Wells Fargo.”
