The Urban Philanthropic Fund fosters collaboration between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors by cultivating a new generation of professionals who can leverage their expertise in finance, management, and philanthropy to drive positive social impact and sustainable change in their communities.

The Problem


Generating wealth and creating a positive social change are often seen as mutually exclusive goals.


Smaller nonprofits lack resources and expertise to assess their initiative outcomes.


There are limited chances available for students to delve into the intersection between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.
