Success Stories

Our Clients

Investing with United Church Funds is more than just values-aligned. UCF’s connection with the United Church of Christ means that we are operating with a partner that respects our culture and theological views. The responsiveness of the staff and the seriousness about social justice screening are in line with our church’s priorities and needs.
One of the reasons we invest with United Church Funds is the opportunity to invest in Beyond Fossil Fuels Fund. We wanted to invest in this Fund that came out of the General Synod resolution. We also wanted to invest with UCF because of the socially responsible screening policy applied to the Funds. It was important for us to be in line with UCC values and to be loyal to the denomination.
UCF offers flexibility in determining investment distributions. We also appreciate UCF’s approach to managing their managers: UCF is continuously looking at the returns of the investment managers, evaluating and making changes as needed to ensure that their long-term investment returns are competitive. UCF provides frequent communications that give us comfort and confidence in their investment management going forward.
