Stewards' Foundation: Mortgage Advances

Why borrow from the Foundation?

  • Our interest rates are low.  Sometimes our lending rate is lower than what we pay to those who invest with us.
  • We understand your needs as borrowers.
  • We can be more flexible than mainstream lending institutions in meeting your needs

Who can apply for a Foundation loan?

  • We will lend to churches who align themsleves to the Christian Brethren or Open Brethren assemblies throughout New Zealand.
  • We will lend to trusts and camps associated with those churches.
  • We will lend to local full time workers in churches, para-church organisations, outreaches and camps, and we will lend to missionaries commended by Brethren assemblies.

What terms do you offer?

  • We offer a very attractive interest rate, often far below what you would normally be able to obtain from a commercial lender.
  • We offer a ten year repayment term for churches and institutions, and a fifteen year term for full time workers and missionaries.
  • We only lend on security of a registered first mortgage.
  • We offer two types of mortgages
    • Our standard reducing payment mortgage (each payment comprising a fixed principal sum plus a reducing interest sum) or
    • A table mortgage (each total payment is the same amount).
