Philanthropy and Community Engagement

Our firm and our staff engage in both formal and informal philanthropy. One way the firm supports employees’ interests in innovative social programs and community service through our Social Impact Forum, a grassroots program created and run by staff. The forum’s lecture series invites leaders and thinkers to speak on topics ranging from global health to education to criminal justice, and is designed to spark conversation and promote community engagement. The forum also offers employees the chance to work together on service projects in education, environmentalism, and poverty relief.

We sponsor various non-profit academic conferences, organizations, and competitions, including:

  • 100 Women in Hedge Funds
  • American Regions Math League (ARML)
  • Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing
  • Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Foundation
  • Stuyvesant High School Robotics Team
  • United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO)

We further our commitment to social responsibility by:

  • Matching employees’ charitable donations for both volunteer time and financial contributions
  • Making a year-end grant to a charitable cause
  • Purchasing renewable energy credits and verified carbon offsets to neutralize the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from our business activities
  • Achieving the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Gold certification for our New York City headquarters
