The Racial Equity Giving Bonus

Earn more on your investment while giving back to another mission!

Earn a rate bonus with the Racial Equity Giving Bonus programs. Invest a minimum of $2,500 in a five-year investment, designate a “give-back” gift of at least 10% to a nonprofit organization that is addressing racial inequity and enjoy the bonus on the balance of your investment for the entire five-year term.


Help further the fight against racial injustice with the Racial Equity Giving Bonus.

Support either a pre-identified and vetted national organization working for racial equity or a self-identified local/regional non-profit organization doing this work by naming them as the recipient of your 10% gift. Your investment is also supporting the mission of the Cornerstone Fund, by allowing it to provide even more low-cost loans to churches and non-profit organizations with an eye toward racial justice.


Earn a bonus for five years.

Simply put, you’ll earn a higher rate of return while still enjoying the potential tax benefits* available on eligible charitable contributions.

*Cornerstone Fund does not provide tax advice. You should consult your own tax adviser.
