Donate to Scholars of Finance

We develop future finance leaders with character and integrity
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

We are transparent.

Our donors will know exactly where their dollars are going. If we are responsible stewards and set proper expectations while fundraising, this will create trust and foster long term financial growth and health.

We are stewards.

We will uphold our values and steward the capital we raise. When we are granted hard-earned funding from donors, friends, institutions, and members, we take that seriously, and will shepherd these funds to make the impact upon which the donations were predicated.

We are investors.

The money that we’re collecting is an investment in the long term future of the finance industry and the world at large. We believe that the capital we collect will contribute to a better future. We will, therefore, examine how to most effectively mobilize this funding for long-term value creation for our students.

You have impact.

More than 1,000 students have attended our programs to date. We plan to expand into new cities and aim to reach several thousands of students by 2021.

We are working hard to strengthen our current programs, develop and launch new programs, and improve the support and experience we provide students.

Whether you’re an individual that wants to give $100 or an institution that wants to give $100,000, your support makes our vision a reality.


The Alpha Fund is a private group of donors that fund Scholars of Finance's overhead.

Alphas pledge annual commitments of $25k minimum to fund Scholars of Finance's staff, growth, travel, and all other operating expenses. Thanks to these donors, we utilize 100% of other donations to fund student programs directly. Alphas also significantly impact our strategy as they enable us to plan with knowledge of future operational budgets. Our first Alpha Fund "vintage" will enable us to truly scale SOF by hiring a team and strengthening our foundation to scale. Alphas get it. They believe in SOF's vision of a bold new era of principled finance leaders.



The Angel Fund is a community of passionate donorswho support our mission with monthly giving.

Angels contribute monthly support to ensure that the programs are world-class and that we have the best staff and technology to support our students.

As an Angel, you have the ability to make a clear and direct impact on our members with your funding by choosing to donate to our growth or programs. Upon donating, you will be updated monthly on the impact that your donation has on our organization, as well as given access to exclusive quarterly reports. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible to show just how important your donation is.

Angels are typically entry to mid-level finance professionals who understand what Scholars of Finance is trying to accomplish and want to be a part of it. They recognize the value in developing ethical leaders within finance, and they do what they can to further our mission.


Whether you’re a student interested in learning about becoming a leader, or a leader interested in teaching these values, we’d love to have you join us.
