Contemporary Center gets Flagstar grant

TROY—On the heels of its successful “Flagstar Crafts Community” initiative that brought $260,000 to nonprofits in communities with branches recently acquired by Flagstar, the bank has announced a second round of grants to nonprofits in those communities.
    With this second investment, Flagstar will be contributing a total of $440,000 in grants to 85 nonprofits in its new markets in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ohio.
    In the Upper Peninsula, recipients of grants included the Crystal Falls Contemporary Center, the Superior Arts Youth Theater in Marquette and the U.P. Foster Closet of Delta County.
     “When we acquired our new branches in the Midwest, we said we fully expected to continue Flagstar’s commitment to good corporate citizenship and community investment in our new markets,” said Gary Wolf, director of Branch Integration for Flagstar.
    “Our Flagstar Crafts Community program gave life to that commitment through grants to local nonprofits. It was a great way for us to get to know our communities, and it was so successful that we wanted to keep the momentum going with a second round of grants. We are pleased and proud to make this additional investment in our communities.”
