This month, members of our staff have traveled to all three of the Annual Conferences in our Episcopal Area. Most recently, this journey took us to Eugene, just a few miles from a place where we can see our sustainable investment dollars at work. Through our partnership with Wespath, some of the funds you hold in the Foundation’s diversified portfolios are invested through the Positive Social Purpose Lending Program. This program promotes affordable housing and community development for disadvantaged areas while seeking to deliver market-rate returns to investors. In Eugene, this program helped to finance the Apple Orchard Village Apartments, which is a handicap accessible low-income apartment complex.

When you invest with us, your church’s endowment enriches your local ministry AND makes the wider world a better place.
