Wells Foundation, incorporated as Wells Memorial Inc., drives entrepreneurial social innovation resulting in lasting change in our community.

Wells Strategies

Wells Foundation will use its endowed funds to support new projects, or expand existing projects, that have demonstrated success in solving a social challenge by addressing the underlying causes of a problem rather than just the symptoms.

Wells Foundation will partner with other organizations to fund social innovation projects and to create a community network for dialogue and action regarding social innovation. We define social Innovation as a creative focus on solving a core problem of identified social needs.  Wells Foundation believes social innovators must act as change agents who address major social problems and offer path-breaking new solutions. We support this belief and our mission by partnering with other organizations on projects that address social challenges or unmet needs and, most importantly, can impact lasting change in the community.
