Impact Investing

What is Impact Investing?

Impact Investing is simply the application of “best business practices” in securing strong investment opportunities; out of which, a significant portion of the net profits are committed up front, to building “The Kingdom of God.”  The balance of net revenues is then distributed to the individual investors.


Why Impact Investing?

Scriptural mandates as to how we are supposed to spend our time, talent and treasure:

1) As “Believers” we are clearly instructed to put the Lord’s “Kingdom” business first!

 “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or “What shall we drink?” or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefor do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.” 
(Matthew 6:31-34)



2) We’re warned to be careful not to “rob God.” 

“Will a man rob God?  Yet you rob me. But you ask ‘How do we rob you?’ ‘In tithes and offerings.  You are under a curse – the whole nation of you – because you are robbing me.  Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house.  Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.  I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit,” says the Lord Almighty.  “then the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,’ says the Lord Almighty.” 
(Malachi 3:8-12)

3) Our attention to all the “Little Things” in life is far more important than the big things that we’re faced with. 

 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.   So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?  And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?”
(Luke 10-12)

The first impact investing project was completed in September 2015.  Ten investors purchased a 19,755 sq/ft, fully-leased office building in Lafayette, Colorado.  The group was able to purchase the building for only $89/sq ft.  This project is producing over $67,000 a year...half of which has been committed to help fund our home base of operations.  It is estimated to produce a 16% return on investment.
