MADISON, NJ – Madison Area YMCA was awarded a $1,000 grant by the Wells Fargo Foundation to support the organization in strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. 

The breakfast event was hosted by Wells Fargo’s newly selected region bank presidents Greg White and Azhoon Abdulghani at the East Hanover Marriott in Whippany.

“We truly appreciate Wells Fargo’s support,” said Amie Herman, Madison Area YMCA Senior Director of Organization Advancement. “We will put this grant toward providing financial assistance to members of our community who otherwise would not be able to afford Y membership, programming and education.”

Madison Area YMCA is a 501(c)(3) cause-driven charitable organization dedicated to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. 

“We host this annual breakfast to celebrate, recognize and say thank you to community heroes such as the Madison Area YMCA for all of their invaluable contributions and dedicated service to empower northern New Jersey neighborhoods over the past year,” said White, Wells Fargo’s Northern New Jersey region bank president. 

The grant was awarded as part of Wells Fargo’s Community Connections program, which provides local branch managers the opportunity to make a $1,000 charitable contribution on behalf of Wells Fargo to a nonprofit of their choice. 

Wells Fargo branches distributed a total of $130,000 in grants to support nonprofit groups serving the northern New Jersey area.

“Each nonprofit grant recipient was identified by our local branches,” said Abdulghani, Wells Fargo’s Gateway region bank president. “They see which nonprofits are out in the community making a difference in the areas where many team members and customers are proud to live and work.”

The annual Community Connections program offers Wells Fargo branch managers the opportunity to provide additional grants to local nonprofits of their choice in New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania.

“Many of our Wells Fargo team members also volunteer or are impacted by the Madison Area YMCA in some way,” said Wells Fargo AVP and Branch Manager Mark Villaluz. “We’re proud to help the nonprofits serve our communities wherever we can.”
