Key Takeaway

The Bank On Fellowship program will provide leadership funding for two years and technical assistance to help build local coalition success.

In this April 2017 press release, the CFE Fund announced the Bank On Fellowship Program, generously funded by Wells Fargo. Through the program, the CFE Fund will provide match funding up to $45,000 per year for two years to as many as five Bank On coalitions to support a full-time Fellow to lead coalition’s activities.
