What are Faith-Based Funds?

Faith-Based Funds—sometimes called Morally Responsible, Biblically Responsible, or Faith-Driven Funds—are a family of mutual funds that invests in companies that meet certain moral and ethical standards.

They avoid companies that manufacture or distribute things such as:

  • alcohol

  • anti-family entertainment

  • tobacco

  • gambling

  • and/or other potentially offensive practices.

Today, biblically responsible or faith-based funds are the fastest growing subset of the socially responsible investing category. Only a short time ago, many plan providers didn’t recommend them because of their poor market performance and their high fees. Now, the fund performance and fees have improved significantly.
