Flex Building Fund Certificate

Because the Loan Fund is committed to assisting churches in meeting their facilities needs, the Loan Fund also offers a certificate designed exclusively for the building funds of Christian Reformed Churches. The Flex Building Fund Certificate allows unlimited investments, up to two no-fee redemptions each month, and pays the same rate as our one-year investment certificate. An initial investment of $5,000 is required. The Flex Building Fund Certificate interest rate is variable and could change several times each month. Interest is compounded and paid quarterly. A statement is mailed at the end of every month.

The rates paid on investments are determined primarily by two factors. First, the Loan Fund attempts to pay rates comparable to similar investments in the marketplace. Therefore, rates paid by the Loan Fund will generally move up or down along with market rates. The level of demand for loans from churches will also influence the rates paid by the Loan Fund. If the demand for loans is high and funds are needed to meet that demand, rates may be increased in order to attract the needed investments. Conversely, if demand is low and sufficient funds are available to meet loan demand, rates may be reduced. Since the rate the Loan Fund pays on investments directly affects the rate paid by churches for loans, we attempt to maintain reasonable rates on investments so that, in turn, churches are able obtain competitive rates on loans. 

Current Flex Building Fund rate is 2.50% APY*.
