Blue Moon Fund
The Blue Moon Fund makes investments that promote the development of environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and fiscally sound small and medium scale ventures in support of the fund's philosophy.
For over 10 years, Calvert Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, has been working to make community investment a safe and logical option for all investors seeking to make a positive social impact.
