Social Impact Fellowship

Twelve Fellows are selected for CMF’s first social enterprise.  In collaboration with Dwight Hall at Yale University, and modeled after the Dwight Hall SRI (Socially Responsible Investing) Fund, this program aims to foster leadership skills and equip the next generation to use their wealth to have a positive impact on their community.  Learning modules are delivered by leading industry professionals, which include:
1. Managing your wealth:  understanding personal financial management,
2. Growing your wealth: principals of markets and investments,
3. Investment strategies for creating change: an introduction to ESG, principals of socially responsible investment, non-profit leadership,
4. Hands-on learning: visit CMF program sites in rural China, develp fundraising pitch delivered to a corporate audience, daily interaction with senior business leaders passionate in nurturing tomorrow's leaders.
At the end of the 4 week program, Fellows continue to work as a team to fundraise and to monitor their Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Fund with guidance from an Investment Committee and individual mentors selected from seasoned finance and legal professionals. In Year 2 and 3, Fellows return to expand their understanding of finance, investments and nonprofit leadership and will secure an internship in Year 3. 
CMF is incubating this program to build nonprofit leadership capacity and nurture life-long commitment to community service for our young leaders. This selective program targets high-achieving high school students who speak English.  

Scholarship bursaries are available for students requiring financial assistance.

"The Endowment Fellowship program at Children's Medical Foundation was a truly transformative experience. For four weeks, we stepped into the real world, dressed up in formal suits, and studied the practical knowledge of non-profit, finance, leadership, and medicine. It was my privilege to be mentored by over 40 speakers that are seasoned professionals working in prestigious corporations. But that's not all. The program went a step further and offered us the opportunity to fundraise and manage a real investment portfolio. Moreover, we learned about neonatal resuscitation and even spent a week traveling to rural China to see the hospitals and facilities that are built as a result of Children's Medical Foundation's initiatives. These experiences are beyond the reach of ordinary education in schools, and I am so grateful that I could embark on this sophisticated and charitable journey with Children's Medical Foundation."
