Our History

UP Fund was founded in 2016 with the mission to investment and community service unlike any other student organization

“Too often, economic development and the finance industry are seen as opposing forces. I started the UP Fund as a way to help students engage with New Haven in a positive way, while developing the skills necessary for careers in finance and investment management. Our goal is to meaningfully support effective nonprofits in New Haven as we inspire our team of future finance professionals to engage with their communities throughout their lives.”

- Ryan Taggarse, Co-Founder, Yale College '19
