For Local Treasurers

Southern Union Revolving Fund (SURF)

Effective December 1, 2023: Demand Notes: 4%, Loans: 6%

The purpose of SURF is to provide low-cost loans to churches and other institutions across the Southern Union Conference while providing a reasonable rate of return to investors. Any member of the Southern Union is able to open a SURF account through their local conference. This opportunity allows members of the Southern Union to not only receive a reasonable rate of return, but also to invest in the mission of the educational institutions and eight conferences across the Southern Union. SURF is considered a 90-day demand note. This means withdrawals from the fund could take up to ninety days to be fulfilled.
