About Ave Maria Mutual Funds
The Ave Maria Mutual Fund Family is America’s largest Catholic-oriented mutual fund family and is managed by Schwartz Investment Counsel, Inc. The funds are designed specifically for serious long-term investors who want to practice morally responsible investing (MRI). The Funds take a pro‐life and pro‐family approach to investing, with a proprietary moral screening process that examines corporate compliance with Catholic teaching regarding abortion, pornography, and policies that undermine the sacrament of marriage. Investments are made only in companies whose operations do not violate core teachings of the Roman Catholic Church as determined by the Funds’ Catholic Advisory Board. The Board is composed of prominent Catholics who meet regularly to review the Funds’ religious standards and criteria. The Fund family consists of four domestic equity portfolios; Catholic Values Fund, Growth Fund, Opportunity Fund and the Rising Dividend Fund, as well as two other funds to help diversify a portfolio, Bond Fund and World Equity Fund.
