Soldiers to Summits is a program of No Barriers USA, whose mission is to unleash the potential of the human spirit. Soldiers to Summits accomplishes this by building transformative experiences designed to help veterans overcome barriers and live a life of purpose. Our journey-based expeditions range from one day to three weeks in length, and have taken us to Nepal, Ecuador, Peru, the South Pole and locations around the US. Climb Higher. Go Further. Dig Deeper. Mission Mt. Whitney, a Wells Fargo sponsored expedition, is underway with the summit set for September.

In 2012, Wells Fargo created a Military Affairs Program to elevate its efforts in serving active duty military and veterans, and named a Military Affairs Program manager.
Wells Fargo also announced that it is committing $35 million over the next three years as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting military service members, veterans and their families. The commitment includes real estate owned (REO) property donations and support valued at $30 million to qualifying nonprofits that serve military service members and veterans, hiring and mentoring initiatives, customized financial education efforts, and funds for philanthropic donations and sponsorships.
In 2013, one year after announcing the $35 million, three year commitment to helping veterans, military members and their families with sustainable housing, career transition and financial education, Wells Fargo is proud to announce it has donated more than 85 real estate owned (REO) properties to wounded warriors, participated in more than 150 military job fairs and launched its Hand on Banking for Military financial education program.
"For us, this isn’t just a sponsorship. This is truly an honor."
