Uniting Financial Services has created a clever investment that allows you and your friends to financially contribute to the Uniting Church Organisation you wish to support. It's called Self Help and it's made up of two parts:
How it works is that you provide direct, ongoing financial support to your chosen Uniting Church Organisation by forgoing the interest on your investment. So, rather than collecting the interest, it's redirected to the Church Organisation's Self Help Scheme.
As a Self Help investor, you can remain anonymous to the Scheme.
A Self Help Investment earns interest for your chosen Self Help Scheme - with a low minimum investment of just $100. Every dollar is free to work harder for you and your chosen Self Help Scheme because there are no transaction or maintenance fees. Accessing and managing your funds is easy with the choice of online, phone and in-branch investing.
You can add to or withdraw from your investment at any time, and interest is calculated daily and paid quarterly to your nominated Self Help Scheme.
Just as nominated Self Help Schemes benefit from the investment holder's interest payments, every Self Help Investment supports the Uniting Church. Help your Uniting Church Organisation with Self Help.
UFS is pleased to be able to offer flexible investment options with the Self Help Scheme. It is now available in an At Call and Fixed Term investment.
