Since 1958, the services of the Extension Loan Fund has provided quality investment opportunities for investors and assisted churches with financing options as they grow, plant other churches, and expand their ministries.
The Loan Fund has helped countless families and investors since 1958 with investment products that accomplish their goals of saving and generosity, while confidently knowing the investment was socially and morally responsible.
At the Loan Fund, we believe our investments are among the best of social investing opportunities as funds on deposit provide funding for churches to expand the Kingdom of God and we believe scripture has much to say about investing and saving.
The Extension Loan Fund has specialized in church lending since 1958 and recognizes that the most important aspect of lending to religious organizations is a spiritual matter rather than a financial one.
We understand the day to day operations of a church because most of our employees are licensed and ordained ministers and have been or are currently serving in substantial roles in their own churches. Many of our clients say it’s a great blessing to work with Loan Fund officers who are involved in and also understand the challenges and opportunities of growing a church ministry.
Successful capital campaigns focus on the growth of the church and growing in faith and not just the bank account.
Our experience has been that campaigns are more about identifying leaders, identifying real needs, becoming more relational and leading the members into a deeper obedience to biblical principles.
There are several campaign companies which the Loan Fund has relationships with that we would recommend, or you could choose to work with a Loan Fund consultant on a Grace & Faith Campaign.
