2012 Financials


RSF’s financial results were very strong for 2012, an indication of the beneficial impact we are having through the movement of money. The stories of our investors, donors, borrowers and grantees demonstrate that impact. We see financial performance as an equal measure.

Our key financial accomplishments for 2012 include:

  • a 12.5% increase in total assets to $151.6 million
  • $19.5 million in revenue
  • $3.6 million net income
  • a strong capital ratio of 10.28%

These accomplishments are something of a contrast to the state of the macroeconomy. Our growth is a sign of our participation in an emerging economy that is sensitive to social and environmental needs. Our most significant challenge was to deploy the additional investor funds received in 2012 to social enterprises aligned with our deep values and risk profile. We are addressing this situation directly by increasing our business development activity and resources for finding borrowers and retaining existing ones.


Our Philanthropic Services program works with 200 clients, has $53.1 million in assets, received $12.3 million in gifts, made $8.4 million in grants, and manages a mission driven investment portfolio of $40 million.  Our Lending program works with 81 clients and has $75.9 million in assets with a $2.6 million loan loss reserve available in case of any non performing loans. The resultant loan loss coverage ratio is a conservative 3.42%.  Since 1984, RSF has made $275 million in loans and incurred a write-off ration of only a 2.06 %.

As leasers in the field of social finance, we have innovated new ways of managing risk to support our borrowers that include interested party guarantees and partnering with other charitable organizations or community banks in direct financing. All of these innovations come with the need for continual learning about the deeper qualities of money and how they can work together to support initiative.

One lending team goal for 2012 was for all financing to be catalytic, while our investment programs center on engagement and are community based. Our philanthropic services goal was to research and implement innovative approaches to grant making and donor engagement such as Shared Gifting and the pilot Local Initiative Fund.
