Invest Your Values
|Socially Responsible Investing
Your savings and investments can help create a better world! Integrating personal values and societal concerns with investment decisions is called Socially Responsible Investing (SRI). SRI considers both the investor's financial needs and an investment's impact on society. With SRI, you can put your money to work to build a better tomorrow while earning competitive returns today. These two sites noted below can help give you more information on this growing trend. As we continue to build out our Make It Happen Resource section, we will add links to other financial news resources that can help us all harness our economic power to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.
The Social Investment Forum is a national nonprofit membership organization that promotes the concept, practice and growth of socially responsible investing. The Social Investment Forum site offers comprehensive information, contacts & resources on SRI. You'll find publications, research, contacts and other practical information to help you learn more and take the next step. Find out more by going to www.socialinvest.org
