Last week, Senan announced the opening of the Fair Harvard Fund. It will officially launch on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012!
The description of FHF is pasted below:
Donate to The Fair Harvard Fund (FHF) to tell the Harvard Management Company (HMC) that you want the option to donate to a Social Choice fund when you make a gift to the endowment.
Your donation will be held in escrow until the HMC accepts the money by creating a Social Choice fund.
Immediately it will be held by Responsible Investment at Harvard at the Cambridge Savings Bank, a locally owned bank in Harvard Square.
If the HMC has not created a Social Choice fund by August 1, 2012, the FHF will be invested according to environmental, social, and governance criteria by the Responsible Endowments Coalition, a 501c3 non-profit organization, until the HMC accepts the money.
You can donate and see how FHF is doing at fairharvardfund.com!
