Make a difference and sponsor a child

We’ve witnessed time and time again how sponsorship truly changes a child’s present circumstances and future possibilities. When you sponsor a child, you’re not only providing them HELP and HOPE, you’re also building and nurturing a personal relationship through letter writing and prayer. Sponsorship provides a boy or girl around the world with help for today and hope for tomorrow.

Biblically responsible investing with the Inspire Impact Score

The ­Inspire Impact Score is a faith-based ESG (environment, social, governance) security selection methodology that seeks to identify the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies in the world.

The Inspire Impact Score utilizes both positive inclusionary and negative exclusionary screens in the scoring process. The result is a rules-based system of finding companies which are operating as blessings to their customers, communities, workforce and the world, and excluding companies which are operating at odds with biblical values.

Inspire seeks out above average, “best in class” companies in the following areas:

Business Model

Business products, services and operations structured in a way to benefit rather than exploit customers.

Product Integrity and Innovation

Creates products and services which are helpful and create value rather than extract value or harm users.

Corporate Governance

Policies and behaviors regarding executive compensation, ethical dealings, board management, etc.

Human Capital

Policies and behaviors regarding equitable employee management.

Social Impact

Impact and influence on society and communities in which the company operates.

Supply Chain
