Building development

Expand your property’s impact on the community

Nearly 25 years ago, the United Church of Christ Cornerstone Fund was created to help churches and non-profit organizations address a range of building-related needs. Today, many churches and agencies find themselves with unused or underused property that can be repurposed—and reimagined—for community impact and economic development. Community development projects can include:

  • Affordable housing
  • Senior housing
  • Child care center
  • Health and wellness center
  • Vocational training / education center
  • Mixed-use property development
The Cornerstone Fund lending difference

The Cornerstone Fund offers competitively priced and low-fee financing options—from $10,000 lines of credit to multi-million-dollar loans—that are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of churches and non-profit organizations, including projects that improve upon the use of unused or underused property. Cornerstone Fund representatives are glad to work with churches to ensure plans and budgets are well structured and complete. Plus, many organizations find that the Cornerstone Fund offers a better financing package than a local bank.
