Fannie Mae Employee Relief Fund

When disaster strikes, everyone can use a helping hand.

Help in the form of financial assistance is now available for Fannie Mae employees whose primary residence is uninhabitable or unsafe to reside in due to a catastrophic event, such as a tornado, fire, or hurricane. Through the Fannie Mae Employee Relief Fund*, a new charitable fund administered by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, employees can confidentially and easily donate to the Fund or apply for assistance when a disaster strikes their home.

Seed money to establish the Fund was contributed by Fannie Mae. However, in order to sustain and grow it, we need your contributions.

Your donations are tax deductible and any donation over $25 made through this site or the Fannie Mae SERVE website is eligible to be matched through the Fannie Mae matching gifts program.

This is a great opportunity to help your colleagues when they need it most.

Make a gift below to help Fannie Mae sustain this program and put your Fannie Mae values into action.

Using Fannie Mae’s guidelines, the Foundation, in its sole discretion, will review applications and make payments directly to eligible, approved creditors of Fannie Mae employees, consistent with IRS requirements.

*Additional details on who is eligible and how the Fund works can be found on Fannie Mae’s HomeSite.
