Origins

How we started

Founded in 1994, Praxis Mutual Funds is designed to help people and groups integrate their finances with their values. Praxis is a mutual fund family of Everence Financial, a comprehensive faith-based financial services organization helping individuals, organizations and congregations.

We believe that the Great Commandment tells us to:

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31

When we apply the Great Commandment to our money, it means we need to be just as concerned about the impact of our investments on others as we are about the financial returns we receive.

At Praxis, we do this through stewardship investing – a philosophy of financial decision making that balances social and financial considerations and is motivated and informed by our faith convictions.

Core values

Living out our beliefs

Our core values embrace a wide range of the social concerns our faith calls us to contemplate, as well as traditional, prudent, financial considerations.
