  1. 1. PRI CONFERENCE 2008 RESOURCE MARKETPLACE EXHIBITORS January 30, 2008 CALVERT FOUNDATION 7315 Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 100W Bethesda, MD 20814 Phone: 301.951.4895; Fax: 301.280.1399 www.calvertfoundation.org Shari Berenbach, shari.berenbach@calvertfoundation.org Lisa Hall, lisa.hall@calvertfoundation.org For over 10 years, Calvert Social Investment Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, has pursued its mission: to maximize the flow of capital to disadvantaged communities. By creating innovative financial products and services Calvert Foundation acts as a leading intermediary and removes barriers for investors. In so doing, it fosters a more effective social capital market – in which more resources flow better and faster to communities in need. Calvert Foundation was established in 1995, the result of a collaboration between Calvert Group, the socially responsible mutual fund company, and the Ford, MacArthur and Mott foundations. As an effective market intermediary for investors seeking blended social and investment returns, Calvert Foundation has structured a range of products and services designed to serve the various needs of institutions, nonprofits and social investors. Calvert Foundation’s Community Investment Note, a security that meets federal and state registration requirements, offers individuals, foundations and other institutions the option to invest in a specialized ‘fund of funds’ dedicated to affordable housing, community development, microfinance, fair-trade, independent media, social enterprise and other social impact areas. This “PRI in a Box” is an easy and flexible alternative for both new and experienced PRI makers and can be customized to meet foundation needs. Calvert Foundation’s Community Investment Partners program provides services to PRI Makers. Calvert Foundation fosters transparency and eases financial transactions in the nonprofit marketplace by providing information and analysis, advisory and brokerage services, and by supporting others to issue and sell financial products that conform to the requirements of the highly regulated financial markets. Our methodology is derived from our successful $125 million community investment portfolio. As a result, we bring a professional approach to this young industry that combines innovation, a balance between financial and social return, administrative experience and investment acumen.

Founded in 1974, the Federation is headquartered in Lower Manhattan with offices in Madison, WI; Colorado Springs, CO; and Lexington, KY. The Federation offers a wide range of advocacy, educational, training, capital, marketing, and outreach programs to support and assist CDCUs. Page 2
  3. 3. PRI CONFERENCE 2008 RESOURCE MARKETPLACE EXHIBITORS January 30, 2008 Since 1982, The Federation's Capitalization Program for CDCUs has helped credit unions strengthen their finances and expand their impact on low-income communities. CDCUs - like all credit unions - raise deposits which they relend to their members. But in low- income communities, raising deposits from people with little disposable income is a major challenge. Congress recognized this in 1970, when it gave low-income credit unions the exclusive right to raise deposits from "non-members" -- organizations and individuals outside the primary field-of-membership of these credit unions. To help CDCUs gather these funds, the Federation launched the Capitalization Program. In 2007, the Capitalization Program celebrated its 25th anniversary. Marking this important milestone, the Federation launched a capital campaign to raise an additional $25 million to invest in CDCUs across the country. As part of this campaign, the program focus has been redirected to bring maximum impact to our members, and rebranded itself as Community Development Investments. Over the past 25 years, many foundations, banks, religious organizations, and other institutions have invested in local CDCUs through this program. The Ford Foundation, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, F. B. Heron Foundation, Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, Mennonite Mutual Aid, Presbyterian Church (USA) Foundation, Jewish Funds for Justice, Bank of America, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, and the federal CDFI Fund are just a few of our investors. Today, the Federation manages nearly $35 million, with an 87% deployment of our investments in 120 different CDCUs. We have become a virtual "one-stop-shop" for credit unions seeking funds to expand their activities: we provide not only deposits, but loans (secondary capital), grants and a secondary mortgage market through our CDCU Mortgage Center, LLC. Our Community Development Investment Program offers investors advantages unmatched in the community development finance field. • Flexibility. We can tailor portfolios to meet your geographic, demographic, or other interests. • Security. Over 25 years, the Federation has never lost or deferred a penny of our investors’ principal or interest. • Diversification. Our broad network makes it possible to distribute investments among CDCUs serving diverse low-income communities across the United States. • Impact. Your investments help communities help themselves. Investor funds are typically matched or leveraged many times over by deposits raised locally by CDCUs from their members themselves. You can help build sustainable financial institutions, built to serve their communities for decades.
