Area Nonprofits, COG Board Call for Continued Charitable Giving from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae

Oct 8, 2008

At its October meeting, the COG Board passed a resolution urging federal regulators to continue Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae's substantial charitable giving programs in the National Capital Region. COG and other area nonprofits have formed a coalition to make sure regulators don't lose sight of the vital impact that Freddie and Fannie’s charitable giving has had on thousands of families in the Washington region. Last year, the two corporations donated over $47 million to area nonprofits and community groups.
