We hadn’t yet linked to Fannie Mae’s most recent statement on its Community and Charitable Giving, posted Jan. 30, 2009:
After a review of Fannie Mae’s charitable giving by our conservator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the Company will continue our support of nonprofit organizations and initiatives that tackle the most urgent needs of communities. This commitment includes support for the Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Program, which has been held annually for 21 years and is now the largest awareness-raising and fundraising event of its kind in the nation.
Our charitable giving will remain focused on a strategy that addresses the nation’s toughest housing challenges, works to prevent and end homelessness, and strengthens our hometown of Washington, D.C.
