Support our Mission and Earn Great Dividends

This term certificate offers a double return: higher interest on your savings (view rates) and a great way to support environmentally-responsible investments. As with our traditional term certificates, you lock in a great rate for the entire length of your term. And your savings help us continue to target green investments, such as loans for green businesses.

Self-Help has invested over $242 million in loans to sustainable businesses, including solar farms, recycling businesses, ecotourism, sustainable foods, land trusts and bike shops. Learn more about our environmental work.
