Investing with a purpose
The student managed portfolio enables members to gain real world experience while giving back.
We provide funding to Indigenous Community Development International (ICDI), which uses the money to provide micro loans to a rural community in Costa Rica. The loans have been used to fund agricultural projects, transportation, and construction equipment, along with providing seed capital for a small business.
Investment Society members take an annual spring break trip to the community in Costa Rica. Members have the opportunity to witness the impact that the program provides, along with giving seminars on general business principles.
