We simplified the name of the Church Investment Loan Fund to the Investment Fund. This change was made to simplify our communication and reflect the variety of Anabaptist organizations for which we provide financing.The Investment Fund simultaneously blesses investors, borrowers, and the people served by EMM workers around the world. Here's how it works ...
... for investors People with a heart to further the work of the church invest some of their savings in the Investment Fund and receive interest income in return.
... for borrowers Anabaptist churches and church-related agencies in Pa. who are purchasing or renovating facilities borrow money from the Investment Fund at favorable adjustable annual rates (currently 4.5% for new mortgages).
... for mission workers The Investment Fund produces $400,000 of income per year for EMM. People around the world encounter Christ through EMM mission work, funded in part by a portion of the interest income from Investment Fund loans.
Here's the back story:
The Investment Fund has been providing a return to believers and furthering the expansion of church ministries since 1959. The fund is administered by a group of church, business, and professional directors, including respected bankers and financial managers from within the Mennonite community.
