Invest in what you believe in while earning a return comparable to a bank certificate of deposit. Since we started in 1984, our repayment rate to investors has been 100% (principal + interest).
Participate in quarterly community pricing gatherings to discuss and make recommendations for changes to the interest rate.
Before deciding to invest, we ask that you please review the RSF Social Investment Fund prospectus. Each year in July, investors receive an updated version of the document from RSF.
No, your note automatically renews every three months unless RSF is notified otherwise in writing.
You may establish a self-directed IRA or a rollover of your retirement account into a Social Investment Note using an IRA asset custodian. It is important to consider the amount of your investment, the earnings you would experience with your investment note, and the annual fees custodians charge before investing.
SIF Note holders are granted access to the RSF Client Portal, where they can view account detail and quarterly statements and change their standing instructions. That said, our systems do not currently have the capacity to disburse funds through the Client Portal. You may set up a one-time or recurring contribution via ACH to add to your SIF Note.
Principal and accrued interest may be repaid to investors at maturity. To begin that process, please contact Amy Beck. RSF is not obligated to allow SIF Note holders to redeem before maturity.
RSF does not charge a fee for wires or checks for redemption. Your bank may charge to receive transfers, however, so we encourage you to contact them before making the request.
