“When I talk to friends and family, it seems we have something unique here.”
Wespath Benefits and Investments (Wespath) believes in being a good corporate citizen, supporting the communities where we live and work. Donations by our employees have helped with these efforts:
JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge 5K which supports charities and communities through fitness, team-building and fun activities
ChildServ, a social service agency reaching children and families in Cook, Lake and DuPage counties
Connections Homeless Shelter which provides housing, employment and supportive services in Evanston, Illinois
Heartland Blood Centers, a resource for medical facilities serving local communities and part of a nationwide blood-sharing program
Greater Chicago Food Depository in the fight against hunger
Wespath has been at the forefront of sustainable investing, with investments made according to values that create a healthy financial bottom line while delivering positive social and environmental returns. We screen our investments, and exclude companies that derive significant revenue from alcoholic beverages, tobacco-related products, pornography, gambling, weapons, or the management or operation of prison facilities.
Positive Social Purpose (PSP) Lending Program
Wespath has allocated nearly $1.8 billion to affordable housing and community development investments through its PSP Lending Program. We are the largest denominational investor in affordable housing programs for low- and moderate-income families in the nation.
Our Glenview campus facility was awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for efficiencies in the building’s design, construction, operation and maintenance. Wespath makes every effort to lessen its environmental impact, reinforcing the organization’s core value of stewardship.
