OUR LEGACY

Giving Back to Our Communities

The First Federal of Northern Michigan Legacy Foundation was initially established by First Federal of Northern Michigan (FFNM), a community bank headquartered in Alpena, MI, with a mission of strengthening the social and economic well-being of the communities in which FFNM operated. Although First Federal of Northern Michigan has since merged into mBank, the Foundation still exists as a legacy to serve the needs of the communities within FFNM’s original footprint.

The Foundation is dedicated to supporting community activities and nonprofit organizations in Alanson, Alpena, Cheboygan, Gaylord, Lewiston, Oscoda, and Mio.

 

OUR GOAL

To strengthen community development and economic well-being of the Northeastern Lower Michigan communities we serve.
