shall refrain from any action which, in its sole judgment made in good faith, or in the judgment of the Directors of which the Manager has notice, would (1) adversely affect the status of the Company as a REIT, as defined in the Code, or (2) violate

the Directors, maintain a fidelity bond with a responsible surety company, in such reasonable amounts as may be required by the Directors from time to time, covering officers, employees and agents handling funds and records of the Company. Such bond
shall inure to the benefit of the Company in respect of losses of such property from acts of such persons through theft, embezzlement, fraud, error, or otherwise, In the event that such a bond is not generally available at a reasonable cost to
companies performing services of the type to be provided by the Manager hereunder, or in the event that such a bond is canceled or not renewed by the bonding company, the Manager shall give notice thereof to the Directors.
3.2 Limitations of Liability of the Manager. The
Manager assumes no responsibility other than to render the services described herein in good faith and shall not be responsible for any action of the Directors in following or declining to follow any advice or recommendation of the Manager. The

expenses, losses, damages, liabilities, demands, charges, and claims of any nature whatsoever in respect to or arising from any acts or omissions of the Manager undertaken in good faith and pursuant to the authority granted to the Manager by this
Management Agreement. The Manager may consult with legal counsel (which may be the regular counsel of the Manager or other counsel), independent public accountants, or other professional advisors and shall not be liable for any action taken or
omitted in good faith by the Manager in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants, or advisors, provided such action is not the result of misconduct or negligence.

Management Fee. The Manager shall receive a monthly management fee for the services the Manager renders to each of (i) the Company, (ii) Foundation Capital
Partners I, LLLP, a Georgia limited liability limited partnership in which the
Company is the General Partner (“FCPI”), (iii) Foundation Capital Partners II,
LLLP, a Georgia limited liability limited partnership in which the Company is the General Partner (“FCPII”), and (iv) any other down REIT in which the Company is the General Partner (collectively, the “Other Down REITs”), based
upon Average Invested Assets of the applicable entity at the beginning of each month (collectively, the “Management Fee”).
For each of the Company, FCPI and the Other Down REITs, the Management Fee shall not exceed three-tenths percent (0.3%) of cash and cash
equivalents, plus the following:
Amount of Average Invested Assets
$50,000,000 to $75,000,000
$75,000,000 to $100,000,000
$100,000,000 and up
Management Fee will be calculated on a tiered basis with the lower fee percentage being applied to each incremental level of Average Invested Assets.
For FCPII, the Management Fee shall not exceed three-tenths percent (0.3%) of cash and cash equivalents, plus one and one-quarter percent
(1.25%) of FCPII’s Average Invested Assets as defined in the Code.
For purposes of this Agreement, “Average Invested Assets” shall be deemed to mean, for any period, the average of the aggregate book value of the assets of the entity invested, directly or indirectly, in loans (or
an interest in loans) secured by real estate, or first mortgage bonds secured by real estate, before reserves for depreciation or bad debts or other similar non-cash reserves, computed by taking the average of such values at the end of each month
during such period.
The Management Fee shall
be computed within twenty (20) days following the end of each calendar month and the Manager shall promptly deliver to the Company an invoice containing the foregoing computations. The Company shall make payment of the Management Fee shown thereon
within ten (10) calendar days of receipt by the Company of the Manager’s invoice. The total of such monthly payments for each calendar year shall be subject to deferral or adjustment, if applicable, within twenty (20) days following receipt by
the Company of its audited annual financial statements for the preceding calendar year.
Acknowledgment of Loan Origination Expenses of Manager. The Manager may attempt to arrange and/or contract for appraisal, real estate title and independent
accountant services to borrowers and prospective borrowers of the Company in
order to provide cost and time efficiencies to them in connection with their borrowing
and prospective borrowing from the Company. It is understood and acknowledged that the Manager will receive reimbursement for such expenses directly from such borrowers, at the time of a loan commitment and/or from the proceeds of loans made by the
Company. All such expenses shall be identified by the Manager to the Company.
4.2 Use of Affiliates. The Manager has the right to use affiliates and personnel of affiliates, consultants or contractors, in its sole discretion, and is not required to perform all duties with
its own employees.
Services. If the Company shall request the Manager to render services to the Company other than those required to be rendered by the Manager hereunder, such additional services, if performed, shall be compensated separately on terms to be agreed
upon from time to time between the Manager and the Company, which terms shall not exceed either (1) the terms under which the Manager or such affiliate is then performing similar services for others, or (2) the terms under which qualified
unaffiliated persons are then performing such services for comparable organizations.
EXPENSES AND LIMITATIONS
5.1 Expenses of the Manager. Without regard to the
compensation the Manager receives from the Company pursuant to this Agreement, the Manager shall bear the following expenses incurred in connection with the performance of its duties under this Agreement:
employment expenses of the personnel or independent contractors employed by the Manager, including, but not limited to, salaries, wages, payroll taxes, fees and the
cost of employee benefit plans;
rent, telephone, utilities, office furniture, equipment and machinery (including computers, to the extent utilized), and other office expenses of the Manager, except
to the extent such expenses relate solely to an office later established and maintained by the Company separate from the offices of the Manager;

Manager of its obligations hereunder;
loan servicing fees, whether or not payable to a third party;
routine accounting fees and expenses; and
routine expenses directly connected with the acquisition, disposition, and ownership of real estate interests or other property.
5.2 Expenses of the Company. Except as otherwise
expressly provided in this Agreement, the Company shall pay all its expenses not assumed by the Manager as set forth in Section 5.1, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is specifically agreed that the following expenses of the
Company shall be paid by the Company and shall not be paid by the Manager:
the cost of borrowed money, including the repayment of funds borrowed by the Company, interest thereon and all other costs, fees and expenses in connection with such
taxes on income and taxes and assessments on real property, if any, and all other taxes applicable to the Company and its investments;
travel and other expenses of directors of the Company;
legal, auditing (excluding routine accounting), underwriting, brokerage, listing, reporting, registration, and other fees, and printing, engraving, and other
expenses and taxes incurred in connection with the issuance, distribution, transfer, trading, registration, and stock exchange listing of the Company’s securities;
fees and expenses paid to Directors, independent advisors, consultants, managers, local property inspectors and other agents employed by or on behalf of the Company;
extraordinary, non-routine expenses directly connected with the acquisition, disposition, and ownership of real estate interests or other property (including the

printing and mailing certificates for securities and proxy solicitation materials and
reports to holders of the Company’s securities;
transfer agents’, registrars’, dividend reinvestment agents’, and indenture trustees’ fees and charges;
legal, escrow and auditing fees and other professional expenses of the Company.
5.3 Annual Operating Expense Limitation Requiring Reimbursement by the Manager. On or before thirty
(30) days after the completion of the annual audit of the Company’s financial statements for each calendar year, the Manager will refund to the Company (to the extent of payments it has received) and defer its right (to the extent of
compensation it has not received for such calendar year) to the amount (the “Excess Amount”), if any, by which the Operating Expenses of the Company for such calendar year exceed the greater of (1) two percent (2%) of the Average Invested
Assets of the Company for such calendar year, or (2) twenty-five percent (25%) of the net income of the Company for such calendar year; provided, however, that the Company may instead permit such refund to be effected by a reduction in the amount of
the payments of compensation under Section 4.1 during the balance of the calendar year next following the calendar year with respect to which such refund is to be made; and provided, further, that only so much of such excess need be refunded as is
conclusively determined by the Directors, including a majority of the Independent Directors of the Company, not to be justified. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Manager shall have no obligation hereunder to reimburse the Company in excess of the
amount actually received or to be received by the Manager as an annual Management Fee or Loan Origination Fee with respect to such year. The term “Net Income” means for any period, total revenue with respect to such period, less the
expenses applicable to such period, except additions to reserves for depreciation, bad debts or other similar non-cash reserves.
5.4 Reimbursement when Expenses Less than Limitations. Subject to the provisions of Section 4.1(b), in the event the Operating
Expenses of the Company in any calendar year are less than the two percent (2%) and twenty-five percent (25%) limitations set forth in Section 5.3 (the “Limitation”) for that year, the Company will pay to the Manager the Management Fee
reimbursed by the Manager to the Company in one or more previous calendar years, provided the aggregate of such reimbursements and Operating Expenses for the current calendar year shall not exceed the Limitation for such calendar year and provided
further that such reimbursement will not cause cash flow problems or dividend problems for the Company as determined by a majority of the Independent Directors of the Company. The Manager’s right to repayment of previously reimbursed Management
Fees shall be cumulative, and the amount of previously reimbursed Management Fees which have not been repaid to the Manager shall be carried forward indefinitely, in accordance herewith, to subsequent calendar years. No interest shall accrue or be
payable to the Manager with respect to any reimbursements paid to the Manager under this Section.
Definition of Operating Expenses. For purposes of this Agreement, “Operating Expenses” shall be deemed to mean the aggregate annual operating, general and administrative expenses determined in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles (including the Management Fee), except the expenses of raising capital, interest payments, taxes, non-cash expenditures (including, but not limited to, depreciation, amortization and bad debt reserves) and the costs related
directly to asset acquisition, operation and disposition.
5.6 Additional Operating Expense Limitation Requiring Reimbursement by the Manager. Certain of the states in which the shares of Common Stock of the Company may be qualified for sale impose limitations on the operating
expenses of the Company which may differ from the Operating Expense limitation set forth in Section 5.3. It is contemplated that the Company and the Manager will provide certain states with undertakings to comply with such limitations. In the event
the operating expenses, as defined in any such undertaking, exceed any expense limitation applicable to the Company imposed by state securities laws or regulations thereunder, as such limitations may be altered from time to time, the Manager shall
reduce its Management Fee by the amount of such excess and, if required pursuant to any such laws or regulations, shall reimburse the Company in the amount of such excess. Whenever such expenses exceed a pro rata portion of any applicable expense
limitation, the estimated amounts of reimbursement under such limitation shall be applicable as an offset against the quarterly payment of the Management Fee due the Manager. Should two or more such expense limitations be applicable at the end of a
quarter, that expense limitation which results in the largest reduction of the Management Fee shall control. If the Manager is ever required to reimburse the Company for any excess operating expense limitation imposed under any applicable state
securities laws or regulations pursuant to this Section, the provisions of Section 5.4 shall apply.
OTHER ACTIVITIES OF MANAGER
6.1 Other Activities of Manager. No
provision in this Agreement shall prevent the Manager from engaging in other activities or businesses or from acting as advisor to any other person or entity even though such person or entity has investment policies and objectives similar to those
of the Company and no provision shall prevent the Manager from receiving compensation for rendering advice to other investors and managing other investments, including investors and investments advised, sponsored, or organized by the Manager, and
including joint ventures and partnerships in which the Company is a co-venturer or partner. No provision in this Agreement shall limit or restrict the right of any director, officer, employee, or shareholder of the Manager or an affiliate of the
Manager to engage in any other business or to render services of any kind to any other corporation, partnership, individual, or other entity. The Manager shall not, however, disclose any confidential information of the Company to other persons or
entities, unless such information is then public knowledge through no fault of the Manager, is properly provided to the Manager without restriction by a third party or is already in the Manager’s possession at the time of receipt by the
Company. The Manager shall notify the Company of its engaging in other activities or businesses which may result in the Manager’s having a conflict of interest with its obligations hereunder.
Investment Opportunities. If the Manager or an affiliate of the Manager acts as an investment manager or advisor for any person other than the Company or a joint venture or partnership in which the Company is a co-venturer or partner, the
Manager shall act on a basis which is fair and reasonable to the Company and to the shareholders in selecting, from among the investment opportunities that come to the attention of the Manager, those investment opportunities which it offers to the
6.3 No Partnership or Joint
Venture. The Company and the Manager are not partners or joint venturers with each other and neither the terms of this Agreement nor the fact that the Company and the Manager have joint interests in any one or more investments shall be construed
to make them such partners or joint venturers or impose any liability as such on either of them.
6.4 Signing Authority. Directors, officers, employees and agents of the Manager or of its affiliates may serve as directors, officers, employees, agents, nominees, or signatories of the Company.
When executing documents or otherwise acting in such capacities for the Company, such persons shall use their respective titles in the Company.
6.5 Independent Contractors. The Manager may independently from time to time negotiate or contract for the services of independent
service providers, including, but not limited to, accountants, auditors, appraisers and title insurance companies, in connection with the Company’s underwriting of individual mortgage loans to churches. In such cases, the Manager may directly
pay for such services from its own funds on behalf of such borrowers and accept reimbursement directly to its own account from such borrowers, either in advance of such expenditure or subsequent thereto.
