Investment Certificates

Earn A Rate Of Return & Build The Kingdom

Invest with Purpose

Whether you are an individual or a ministry, you can give meaning to YOUR money through an Investment Certificate! Investment Certificates are a wonderful tool to increase returns AND participate in the Mennonite Brethren community. Certificates may be owned outright or through an IRA.

While you earn interest and/or save for retirement, we are able to make loans to MB churches and organizations that are expanding their ministry. Our Loan Program is funded by our Investment Certificates and that means your investment can help transform lives. You can view some Loan Projects you have partnered on and see your investments at work.

HOW IT WORKS

Earn a rate of return and build the Kingdom. When you invest with MB Foundation you are investing in ministry. Your investment provides capital for our loan program. While you earn a rate of return, we help churches reach their full ministry potential. We call that an investment with purpose. We call that Giving Meaning to Money®!
