Our Kentucky Footprint
Our impact in Kentucky starts with direct engagement in local communities.
Wells Fargo has funded an outdoor art exhibit in Lexington, Kentucky, and has transformed the site of a former slave auction into an outdoor museum designed to unify the community. The public square in the center of the Cheapside neighborhood was once one of the largest slave auction sites in the U.S. Today, the same site where African American men, women, and children were once sold as property is telling a different story, thanks to the civic art project, “I Was Here.”
JPMorgan Chase is giving $2 million over three years to support efforts in Kentucky to help prepare high school students for future careers. Developed as part of JPMorgan Chase’s $75 million global New Skills for Youth initiative, the funds support collaboration between government, business, and education leaders to strengthen career education and create pathways to economic success.
