The Haas Social Impact Fund

The Haas Social Impact Fund (formerly Haas for Students) was founded in 2004 by Haas students interested in social sector careers. HSIF provides grants to first-year, full-time MBA students who accept summer internships in the nonprofit or public sectors. These grants allow students to put their Haas MBA to use for organizations that are doing important work in communities around the world but cannot offer to pay a "typical" MBA salary.

In 2013 HSIF and raised over $26,000. Eleven first-year, full-time MBA students were awarded with summer internship grants averaging $3,155. HSIF Fellows in 2013 include:
Priya Mehta, Erica Butow, Alma Rico, Maya Tobias, Vishal Shah, Molly Bode, Eduardo Medina, Laura Tilghman, Vivek Murali, Pablo Cuaron, Agung Nugroho

Donate to the Haas Social Impact Fund

HSIF funding comes primarily from Haas first year MBAs, who typically donate one day of their summer internship salary to the fund to demonstrate  Haas’ commitment to supporting non-profit/public sector endeavors. Contributions from matching corporation donations, alumni, and other donors are another integral part of HSIF.
