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.

2021-2023 Priorities for our Alpha Fund

Hire team and technology to support national expansion

Measure and maximize student impact empirically
