To Turn Imagination into Innovation
Social Value Creation Fund

The Center for Social Value Creation positions the Smith School as a front runner of social responsibility, sustainability, and social entrepreneurship in higher education. Your support enables us to cultivate solution-driven, socially minded students—and empower them as the next generation of leaders who will do well by doing good.

You support will help to:

  • Create an Impact Investment Fund
    • The investment fund will serve as a real-world learning tool, allowing students to create quantifiable social and environmental impact while learning the financial landscape of emerging markets.
  • Develop the “Smith Sustainability Corps”
    • Leveraging the tools of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), Sustainability Corps students will work with client organizations to help them align financial, ecological and societal objectives in a yearlong practicum.
  • Support the Social Venture and Nonprofit Consulting Programs
    • Students hone their skills by leveraging classroom knowledge in the non-profit and public-sector environment. Students gain tangible experience and the clients they serve receive consulting services in the areas of finance, marketing, IT, operations and strategy. Past clients include: Takoma Park/Silver Spring Co-Op, Inter-American Development Bank, The SEED School and Good360.
