Because we are a nonprofit organization, we can offer competitive loan rates while paying above-average rates to our investors. Keep in mind, past performance is not an indication of future results.

We request a minimum investment period of one year. Both variable and fixed interest rates are available. Earnings on Methodist Loan Fund investments are reported and credited monthly. The set rates are based on changes in broader interest rates and changes in the financial markets. There are no fees for these funds.
