LESS THAN TWO WEEKS TO GO TO THE START OF OUR NEW COURSE!
We're excited that our new course, Faithful Finance: Aligning Investments with Faith Values, begins on 28 February 2024. Delivered in four live-taught, online modules over four weeks, it covers the foundational principles of faith-based investing, including how to engage with financial intermediaries with clarity and confidence and how to go further on the faith-consistent investing journey. This first course is full but the next one starts on 8 May 2024. Click below for course details and to register your interest.
Our question to faith groups is: 'You're doing great things with what you get from the returns on your investments. But where you are putting your funds? The inexorable logic is that your values should affect everything you do – including where you invest your money in the first place.
We exist to grow the scale and impact of faith-consistent investing worldwide by supporting faith groups to invest in line with their values – for the benefit of people and planet. Our vision is of a world in which faith groups, motivated by their passionate conviction that investing in line with their values will achieve a just and sustainable world, actively use their investments for the common good.
We have a range of free-to-access and paid-for services, including free assessments of investment policies for faith-based organisations and a network of like-minded investors. We also offer training courses, one-on-one consultative support and more. Contact us to see how we can help.
Faith-consistent investing (FCI) is about ensuring your investments reflect your faith values. It is about going further than avoiding harm through negative screening; it's also about investing positively in a way that reflects an organisation's beliefs, values and principles. We have resources and guides to help you!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

It's been a great conference. What's struck me most is the motivation and the consistency of values across the room. The table conversations have been great.

We had to go on a journey, and FaithInvest's role in the journey was a really critical part, giving us perspective at all steps along the way.
Chair, Special Committee on the Ethics of Investment Practice, Church of Scotland
When we met with FaithInvest, we had a lightbulb moment. They were proposing a structure other churches had used... I thought we might have just cracked a way to work through this.
By donating to FaithInvest, your gift helps us develop the free-to-access tools, programmes and resources needed to support faith groups as across as wide a range of geographies and capacities as possible. We are very grateful for any support you can give us.
