San Jose State University has received a $20,000 gift from Wells Fargo for CommUniverCity San Jose.
The funding will support programs providing student volunteers the opportunity to reach out to people of all ages who need a hand with banking basics, homeownership, and taxes.
CommUniverCity brings together the City of San Jose, San Jose State University and the communities of Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace through service and learning.
The result is a successful collaboration built around the priorities and goals of the residents, which include improving quality of life, building community, and engaging all participants in civic life.
Professor of Urban and Regional Planning Dayana Salazar serves as CommUniverCity San Jose’s executive director.
