THE STORY:

Launched in September 2009, the University of Michigan Social Venture Fund (SvF) invests in and supports innovative companies that place social impact at the heart of their business model. As the first student-run social venture fund in the country, SvF provides an unparalleled action-based learning experience, which places equal importance on maximizing financial returns and socially/environmentally-driven venture investing and entrepreneurship. 

The best way to learn about what we do is to watch the video below or to visit our website, but if you want it summed up for you here it is:

We are training the next generation of values based business leaders by investing in and supporting innovative, profitable, sustainable and socially driven businesses. We are dedicated to improving our schools, our health, our cities and our environment by providing social entrepreneurs with the capital and the technical skills they need to achieve their missions.

The Ross MBA Class of 2010 provided the initial capital for the fund by generously directing their class gift to the SvF.  However, we look to invest $50,000 – $250,000 in 2 social enterprises per year and thus need your help. 

Any donation: $10, $100, or $1,000 will move us closer to achieving our goal and will be magnified by a generous $10,000 matching gift we received last year from Lee Gorman and Mark Ritz.

Donate now and help us build an ecosystem of social enterprises.  Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions, wish to contribute through a check, or are interested in seeding an SvF endowment, please contact Jamie Shea at sheajd@umsocialventure.com.

All returns from our investments go back into our portfolio companies or new social enterprises (no we are not using your donations to put money in our pockets!)

All donations will go to SvF through the University of Michigan and are tax deductible.

All donations will be used to provide capital for social entrpeneurs, not for SvF administration.
