Notes

  1. The fund has changed tracking indexes one time in its history:
    • Calvert Social Index through December 16, 2005.
    • FTSE4Good US Select Index thereafter.
    The higher than average turnover in 2005 was due to a change in the fund's tracking index.
  2. The Fund CR (Commission Ratio) is derived by dividing the brokerage commissions paid by the fund into a fund's average net assets. Brokerage commission expense is the only transaction expense that can be quantified. Additional transaction costs, such as spread costs and market impact costs, must be estimated.
