UCF’s responsible investing strategy and screening processes match our values. In addition, UCF’s steady, consistent investment return helps us meet our financial goals and fund our ministries. Having the trust and the faith that our money is invested responsibly and giving us a return to enable us to do our work is crucial. UCF works very hard to make it possible for us to do both.
