Community Engagement

For more than 85 years, Fannie Mae has served communities through our business and volunteerism.

Fannie Mae Serve 360 - Giving Back

Fannie Mae employees contribute their time, talent, and resources to support efforts that address some of our nation’s most urgent challenges. While the company focuses on tackling housing-related issues that support our core mission and business, our employees also participate in a wide range of volunteer opportunities with community-based organizations that align with their interests. We provide employees 10 hours of paid volunteer leave per month to enable them to give back to their own communities.

Whether through volunteerism or employee giving, our Community Investment and Engagement team makes it possible for our employees to engage in their communities with passion, purpose, and impact.

Serving our communities

Fannie Mae’s Serve360 initiative provides an opportunity for our employees to take part in projects that are focused on building resilient homes, safe and healthy communities, and workforce readiness. Our spirit of service is on full display throughout the year as employees can volunteer individually or as part of a team in various activities, such as rebuilding disaster-impacted homes, assisting in group home improvements, mentoring students, and teaching financial literacy.

Disaster Rebuild Deployments

When natural disasters affect a community, the impact can be significant. With the goal of reducing the time it takes for a family to return to a safe and stable home after a disaster, our Disaster Rebuild Deployment program provides opportunities for our employees to participate in clean-up activities as well as home repairs and rebuild efforts. It is one of only a few corporate community impact programs in the country that invests in the long-term recovery of communities devastated by natural disasters. We provide eligible employees with 37.5 hours of paid disaster relief volunteer leave annually to enable them to serve in disaster-stricken communities.  

Employee giving and Matching Gifts program

We are honored to support the generosity of our employees and encourage them to contribute to a cause or organization of their choice through employee giving. Employees can double the financial impact of their eligible donations through our Matching Gifts program up to a maximum of $5,000 annually.

Statement regarding grants

On Sept. 13, 2013, Fannie Mae announced the conclusion of its grant-making program. Fannie Mae does not provide or award grants as part of its business, and the Community Investment and Engagement team no longer reviews letters of inquiry or proposals. Fannie Mae continues to actively engage in efforts to foster and support communities through many other vehicles, such as employee volunteerism.
