                 BANK TEACH FINANCIAL LITERACY TO AREA YOUTH

    —Banking Basics, Credit Management and Financial Dignity Among Topics
                 Presented to More Than 200 Denver Students—

Volunteers from First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading
global provider of title insurance and settlement services for residential and
commercial real estate transactions, along with Operation HOPE (HOPE), a
financial dignity nonprofit, teamed to present a “Youth Academy” on September
11. The academy was a local event at which more than 200 Denver high school
students from the far northeast communities and Denver Summit Schools Network
learned to manage money and increase their earning potential.

Hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City - Denver Branch, students
learned about the basics of banking, checking and savings accounts. The
instruction was provided by HOPE Corps members, financial-industry volunteers
trained by HOPE to share their knowledge of banking and credit in terms that
students can understand and quickly put into practice. In addition to
financial education, the students were given messages of empowerment,
responsibility and hope.

“It is so important for students to learn the basics of money management so
they are prepared to enter society with an understanding of how to manage
their basic finances,” said Lionel Savage, President of First American
Community Fund, who also serves as chairman of Operation HOPE’s mid-Atlantic
board. “By teaching these basic financial skills, it is our hope that these
students will learn healthy money-management practices and attitudes that will
last throughout their lives.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with First American to bring Banking on Our
Future to the local community,” said Mary Kathryn Sagaria, Operation HOPE’s
Banking on Our Future Denver program manager. “The students participating in
this event attend schools that are part of the Denver Public Schools’ School
Turnaround initiative, which focuses on increasing student academic
performance. Therefore, this event highlighting financial education and
leadership is well aligned to significantly support a turnaround goal.”

“The Federal Reserve is committed to helping educate all about being money
smart, and this was another great opportunity for us to reach students.
Typically, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City conducts more than 100
programs a year targeting financial education for both students and adults,”
said Alison Felix, assistant vice president and Denver Branch Executive for
the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. “We provide free materials through
FederalReserveEducation.org so students, parents and educators can learn more
about personal finance. It is especially important to be a partner and
resource with the new personal financial literacy standards being implemented
in Colorado this fall.”

Founded in 1996, Banking on Our Future is Operation HOPE’s premier financial
education program for youth in underserved communities. The program won one of
Oprah’s Angel Network Awards and the U.S. Treasury Department’s John Sherman
Award for Financial Literacy Excellence. Using a growing network of trained
volunteers, the program has educated more than 720,000 youth nationwide. An
online version of the course is available at bankingonourfuture.org. For more

First American Financial Corporation and Operation HOPE have been in
partnership since 2004. John Hope Bryant, Operation HOPE’s founder, chairman
and chief executive officer, served on First American’s National Advisory
Council from 2004 until 2009.
