9/24/19

Through its Community Possible giving and engagement platform, U.S. Bank has invested $500,000 in the Family Independence Initiative Twin Cities (FII) housed at the Wilder Foundation. FII is a data-driven strategy that invests in the strength of low-income families to break multi-generational cycles of poverty. Different from other direct service models, families take the lead in connecting with each other, sharing resources and activating the changes they want to see in their lives and communities.

“Our goal is to empower people to succeed in the workforce, grow small businesses and gain greater financial wellness,” said Reba Dominski, Chief Social Responsibility Officer for U.S. Bank. “Through our partnership with Wilder and FII we know we will help Twin Cities families do just that.”
