In advance of Veterans Day, Wells Fargo announced that it is committing $35 million over three years to assist current and former members of the U.S. military.

The San Francisco bank also announced that customers using its ATMs will be able to make donations to military service members and veterans from Nov. 14 to 30.

The large majority of the bank’s commitment, $30 million, will come in the form of bank-owned property that will be donated to nonprofit organizations, Wells Fargo said in a news release Nov. 8. The nonprofits will then match the properties to veterans based on individual needs.

Wells said that it is also donating to hiring and mentoring initiatives for veterans, financial education efforts, and funds for scholarships.

“With this $35 million commitment, it is Wells Fargo’s goal to have a role in our nation’s efforts to support military service members, veterans and their families,” Jon Campbell, head of community and government relations at Wells Fargo, said in the news release. “Our mission of helping our customers succeed financially holds especially true for the men and women who serve our country through the military.”
