Strengthening Ministries with Sound Investing

Established in 1909, United Church Funds is the leading provider of investment management and planned giving services to the United Church of Christ (UCC) churches and ministries, and serves faith-based organizations beyond the UCC.

UCF offers socially responsible investment funds designed to help faith-based organizations grow and preserve their financial legacies. Our family of funds enables churches and ministries to customize their investment portfolio according to their risk tolerance, time horizon and return objectives.

Serving as a trusted investment partner for churches and faith-based organizations for over 100 years, UCF has an in-depth understanding of your unique financial needs and goals – as well as the guiding principles and missions that inspire you.

Socially Responsible Investing: Invest in Your Values

Your investment portfolio should reflect your mission and purpose. Leveraging a three-tier approach to socially responsible investing, UCF combines shareholder engagement, proxy voting and exclusionary screens – empowering your organization to align its values and morals with its investment.

Ministry Stewardship Through Planned Giving

As part of our ministry, UCF helps UCC churches and ministries launch and integrate planned giving into their existing endowment programs, and provide the resources necessary to maximize planned giving initiatives.

The Highest Standards of Service

UCF provides Wall Street expertise with a Main Street approach to client service. As a faith-based ministry, our mission is to guide and support like-minded organizations by creating the resources necessary to establish and promote a long-term legacy for future generations.

UCF also sets itself apart from commercial investment firms by offering competitive performance at the lowest possible cost.
