Provide a written report of current investments and investment policies, including options for donors to church's endowment, in part to determine if there are any investments that should be divested. This is a first step toward informing the congregation about climate change and the need to divest from fossil fuel companies. If there are investments to be divested, they should be redirected to green energy to help slow the increase in the earth's temperature and growth of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.
Why is this important?
The investments should fit with the church's mission and vision, while providing income to support the programs of the church.
