CAFN Funders

Leadership Funders

Bank of America

Bank of America’s operating support has helped CAFN remain nimble so it can determine the best way to support the region’s struggling homeowners.  CAFN is grateful to Bank of America for this grant and for the participation of Olive Idehen on the CAFN Leadership Group.

Community Foundation

CAFN received support from the Community Foundation of the National Capital Region’s Neighbors in Need Systems Reform Grant, in recognition of CAFN’s work knitting together a regional response to the foreclosure crisis.  This grant provides support for the CAFN hotline, which is operated by the nonprofit Housing Initiative Partnership, and general operating support for CAFN.

Freddie Mac

CAFN is deeply appreciative of the financial and programmatic support that Freddie Mac has provided for the past three years. Freddie Mac was a significant sponsor of the work that the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington and Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments undertook on foreclosure independently. It was that support and work that helped bring the organizations together to create CAFN. Freddie Mac hosted and organized CAFN’s first official event, a regional counselor training on how to work with servicers. Most recently Freddie Mac has been a full or partial funder of the CAFN hotline, the Capital Area Foreclosure Prevention Fund, the text messaging campaign, and the website relaunch.  Laurie Mittenthal, Senior Community Relations Manager for Freddie Mac, serves on the Leadership Group.

Fannie Mae

Fannie Mae’s financial support has been critical to CAFN’s successful launch. Fannie Mae was a significant sponsor of the work that the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington and Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments undertook on foreclosure independently. Fannie Mae is also a major sponsor of the foreclosure data collection and research conducted by the Urban Institute. Most recently Fannie Mae fully or partially funded a strategic planning process for CAFN, the Capital Area Foreclosure Prevention Fund, and provided operating support.  Rosie Allen Herring is a member of CAFN’s Leadership Group.

Neighborworks America

CAFN is appreciative of the financial support provided by NeighborWorksAmerica  and for the participation of Ramona Johnson on its Leadership Group. In addition, NeighborWorks America support includes increased access for Washington area housing counselors to training offered through the NeighborWorks Center for Homeownership Education & Counseling (NCHEC). NeighborWorks provided leadership support to help create the Capitol Area Foreclosure Prevention Fund and is currently providing its second year of support to the Fund.

United Way of The National Capital Area

The United Way of the National Capital Area provided leadership grants to help create the Capital Area Foreclosure Prevention Fund and is currently providing its second year of funding. United Way has also been working through other channels to call attention to the need for continued support for foreclosure prevention counseling.  CAFN is grateful for this support and the active participation and leadership of Jason Small in its leadership group.

CAFN would like to acknowledge and thank Capital One for its operating support in 2011.

CAFN would like to thank Wells Fargo for its 2011 operating grant, its 2010 support, and for the participation of Stephen Briggs on its leadership group.
