What We Offer

For over 25 years, RSF has been expanding the definition of social finance by providing loans, gifts, and investments that foster social and spiritual renewal. All of our services are designed to align your money with your values, and encourage direct and meaningful relationships between investors and social entrepreneurs, donors and grantees.

Overview

RSF Social Finance offers three investment options for those seeking meaningful and transformative financial relationships.

Social Investment Fund

The RSF Social Investment Fund provides a unique opportunity to invest in a diversified, direct loan fund comprised of over 75 leading non-profit organizations and for-profit social enterprises.

Mezzanine Fund

The RSF Mezzanine Fund provides capital to help an enterprise achieve growth through a mix of debt, warrants, royalty streams, fee notes, and/or convertible notes.

PRI Fund

The RSF PRI Funds give foundations a streamlined way to make loans from program payouts. Focusing on sustainable food & agriculture, your foundation’s contributions can earn a small return and be “recycled” toward additional PRIs or grants.

Social Enterprise Lending

The Core Lending Program offers mortgage loans, constructions loans, and working capital lines of credit exclusively to nonprofit and for-profit organizations dedicated to improving the well-being of society and the environment.

PRI Lending

Investments in the RSF PRI Fund are used to provide loans of $50,000 or greater to non-profit and for-profit social enterprises addressing key issues in food production, food access, value-added processing, distribution, retail, and waste management.

Donor Advised Funds

The RSF Donor-Advised Fund is a charitable giving vehicle that allows an individual, group, family, corporation, trust, or foundation to make a tax-deductible contribution to RSF, and then recommend grants to qualified nonprofit organizations.

Shared Gifting

Through the Food & Agriculture Focus Area Fund, RSF will build a community of mission-aligned grantees in the San Francisco Bay Area to engage in fund-sharing.

Seed Fund

The RSF Seed Fund provides small gifts (between $1,000 and $5,000) to seed new initiatives that fall within RSF’s mission statement; successful grantees offer innovative solutions to furthering the field of social finance, or address issues in one of our three focus areas.
