Invest In Social Change Through The NYU Impact Investment Fund!
Will you join us to create the future of social change?
Impact investing is one of the most disruptive financial tools for social good. NYU is at the forefront of building and preparing future leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators with programs that both educates and funds social change-makers.
Enter the NYU Impact Investment Fund (NIIF), a first-of-its-kind impact investment fund. NIIF is a unique program that unites students from the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, the Stern School of Business, and the NYU Law School to provide experiential learning by managing every stage of an impact investment fund.
NIIF is a student-led, student-run impact investment fund through which students gain hands-on experience by managing and advising an impact fund. Students from NYU Wagner, Stern and the Law School ultimately work together to invest in innovative social enterprises. By investing in early-stage businesses that have a socially-based mission, we are helping facilitate social change.
By supporting NIIF, you will be providing NYU students the opportunity to become leaders of future social change! We need people like you who want to support a new generation’s opportunity to pioneer impact investment.
Your support will be used to invest in social enterprises while giving students an invaluable learning opportunity!
Donations to NYU for the NYU Impact Investment Fund (NIIF) will be used to support this program, through which students will have the opportunity to learn about impact investing by doing it. As part of this program, NYU makes contributions to a designated NIIF account at a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) – currently Impact Assets, Inc., a Maryland non-profit corporation – over which NIIF has advisory privileges. Following its research into several identified sectors and potential investments within them, NIIF will recommend that the DAF make specific investments in the NIIF account that meet NIIF’s criteria. NIIF will monitor investment performance and, from time to time, will recommend distributions from the NIIF account to charities (other than NYU) that support or otherwise seek to advance the goals of impact investing.
