Community UCC moves endowment funds to a fossil-fuel free investment fund

The Charitable Gifts and Endowments Committee is pleased to announce that Community UCC has moved its endowment funds to better mirror the mission of our church with environmental and socially responsible investing.

Six of our endowment funds are now invested in the United Church Fund’s Beyond Fossil Fuel Balanced Fund, created after passage of the UCC General Synod 2013 Resolution that addressed climate change through all available methods.

Performance of the fund has been positive compared to its benchmark for the past three years.

We are pleased to make this change so that Community UCC addresses the urgency of healing the earth’s climate, our home, and God’s gift for all life. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day.
