Flagstar Bank's Crafting Community program
attracted more than 14,000 votes for over 150 competing charities nominated by Flagstar's new branches in
Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio. The program was our way of demonstrating the value we place on
being involved and invested in the communities we serve. The winners were selected by the community
for the community. And now that the votes are counted, each of the 52 branches in our new markets will
be presenting checks of $5,000 to their local charity garnering the most votes. That's a total investment
by the Flagstar Foundation of $260,000.
We thank our participating charities and the voters who supported them for embracing Crafting Community and for their enthusiasm and competitive spirit. And we thank charities that competed for the opportunity to get to know them, and of course, for good they do every day in their communities.
