SocialFunds.com -- Bethesda, MD – Calvert Social Investment Foundation (Calvert Foundation) has announced the re-launch of its website. The information and interactive tools available at www.CalvertFoundation.org benefit a variety of audiences - from the classroom to the boardroom, featuring interactive and multimedia community investment content.

Highlights include A World of Change – Community Investment Videos , presenting eight stirring documentaries from around the world in streaming video format. Through this multimedia interface, users hear and see the world through the eyes of people who were able to turn microcredit loans into successful businesses and life changing opportunity.

For research and information, there are many unique features to help users get a better sense of how community investment can be used to support disadvantaged communities. Information on over 100 community development organizations is now available in an improved Community Investment Profiles Database. These profiles include summary narrative and financial information, as well as stories about families and communities that are thriving with the support of community investment. There is also a Community Investing Newswire, Industry Research Articles, a Primer article entitled “What Is Community Investing?” and links to some of other preeminent internet resources for concerned investors.

www.calvertfoundation.org also provides detailed information about various community investment offerings, including Calvert Community Investment Notes. In the Investment section is a full description of this and other community investment options, including prospectuses and enrollment forms that will enable investors to join the battle against poverty. And, the Social Return on Investment Calculator that enables users to develop an understanding of social returns from community investments based on actual impact data that Calvert Foundation has collected from numerous organizations in the field.

The site was developed with the assistance of SRIWorld.com, the Internet's most comprehensive family of personal finance sites devoted to socially responsible investing. Thanks to Bahman, Jen, Leyth and Jay at SRIworld.com, and Tenth Street Media, Rooy Media and Fairtrade Foundation.
