The Cornerstone Fund lending difference

The Cornerstone Fund offers competitively-priced and low-fee financing options—from $10,000 lines of credit to multimillion-dollar loans—that are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of churches and non-profit organizations.

Your ministry and mission are so much more than a building, but a building is also likely to be one of your largest assets. As a faithful steward of your building and property, you may need to make capital improvements or renovations to the building—or creative property redevelopment—to support vibrant ministry.

The Cornerstone Fund offers several loan programs at attractive rates, and many find that the Fund offers a better financing package than a local bank. Cornerstone Fund representatives work exclusively with churches and non-profit organizations to ensure plans and budgets are well-structured and complete.

Construction loans designed exclusively for churches

The Cornerstone Fund was created to help churches and non-profit organizations address a range of building-related needs, from straightforward repairs to large-scale renovations and additions. Whatever your church’s needs, the Cornerstone Fund can help you explore your options, develop your plans, and select the financing program that best suits your budget.
