Earlier this year, Alaska Pacific University received a $50,000 grant from Wells Fargo to support efforts to expand operations on the Spring Creek Farm of APU’s Kellogg Campus in Palmer, Alaska. APU was one of three Alaska organizations that were among the 54 non-profits to receive funding through the Wells Fargo Environmental Solutions for Communities Grant Program that supports projects focused on land and water conservation, energy efficiency, infrastructure, and educational outreach in communities across America.
The grant program began in 2012 as part of Wells Fargo’s commitment to provide $100 million to environmentally-focused nonprofits and universities by 2020. Wells Fargo has invested $350,000 in nine such Alaska nonprofits and universities over the last three years,
“We believe that helping our communities become better stewards of the environment will improve the long-term quality of life of our customers and team members,” said Dana Rogers, Alaska community affairs manager for Wells Fargo.
Megan Talley, Manager of the Spring Creek Farm on APU’s Kellogg Campus, recently posted about developments on the APU Palmer property for Wells Fargo’s environmental blog.
