THE STORY:

We would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our CrowdRise site! 

Who We Are

The Hampton Scholars Investment Fund, LLC (“HSIF”) is a premier undergraduate student-run, student-owned investment fund. Each student who joins has the invaluable opportunity to assists in the creation and implementation of HSIFs investment strategy. Our core business in managing a diversified portfolio of equity and fixed income securities. In addition to this, we seek to promote financial literacy to the youth in the greater Hampton, Virginia community. 

Our History

Last year, members of HSIF competed in the 2013 Prudential Case Competition within Hampton University's School of Business. In hopes of creating an organization that could give back to the community, build relationships, and give students real life investing experience, the team took a portion of their $6000 cash prize and used it as starting capital to commence the development of the Hampton Scholars Investment Fund.

What We Have Accomplished

Since then, HSIF has conducted two Financial Literacy Seminars, focused on saving, investing, and future college plans. HSIF has also given out a $150 book scholarship to a student within Hampton University's School of Business. In addition to this, HSIF has developed a partnership with Prudential, which has actively showed support with our endevouers by supplying prizes for seminar attendees.

Fundraiser Purpose

The purpose of this fundraiser is to obtain a significant amount of capital to assist us in the planning, development, and implementation of financial literacy seminars for the youth, as well as the initial investment and management of a diversified portfolio of assets.

Our primary goal is to create opportunity...

We exist to create opportunity for future generations by establishing a more well-defined network between current and former Hampton University Pirates. Additionally, we seek to provide pipeline programs to firms within the business industry, provide students with hands-on investing experience, and empower the next generation of leaders by exposing them to personal finance concepts at an early age.
