ENABLING SOCIAL PROGRESS THROUGH FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We would like to create an alternative way for us to use our savings in a conscious and socially constructive way. Most banks, RRSPs and mutual funds invest our money in corporations that place profit ahead of environmental and social costs, and have no moral duty except financial gain. In this case, our money would be working in a system that creates economic injustice and environmental harm.

We want there to be a way that we as individuals can place our savings in projects that we believe are valuable and will make our world a better, more human place for all. We don’t have to give our money to banks to profit from, if there is a reasonable alternative that is safe and fiscally responsible. We want to help create a new way of moving capital that connects borrowers and lenders without the bank profiting in the middle.
