Community is a core value at WEX, and giving back through our corporate philanthropy program is one of the many ways that our company supports our communities. Our corporate grants provide financial support to non-profit organizations serving greater Portland and the state of Maine, where we are headquartered.

We direct our corporate community support towards four overarching categories: the arts, education, social equality, and wellbeing. Learn more
