Oxford Educational Foundation executive director Dr. Raymond Fischer accepts a $1,000 grant that the organization received from Wells Fargo.


The Oxford Educational Foundation was recently named as one of this year's recipients of a grant from the Wells Fargo Community Giving Program.

“At Wells Fargo, we are committed to supporting programs and organizations that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success,” said Eric Ronan, store manager of the Wells Fargo in Oxford.

The Oxford Educational Foundation is a community organization whose sole purpose is to enhance the quality of education of students attending the Oxford Area School District.

Wells Fargo Community Giving Program is an annual program where each of its retail banking stores explores the needs of their local communities and selects a nonprofit organization or school to receive a $1,000 grant. This year, Wells Fargo will award close to $300,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations and schools throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware. The grants are part of the company’s broader support of its communities.  In 2012, Wells Fargo invested more than $15 million in nonprofit organizations and schools and team members volunteered more than 38,000 hours across Pennsylvania and Delaware.
