Investments in Hedge Funds Help Nonprofits Support Summer Education

Nonprofit organizations across the country play a critical role in supporting families during summer break. While children get a welcome break from the classroom, this time outside of school can also contribute to the “summer slide,” the tendency for students – especially those from low-income families – to lose some of the achievement gains made during the school year.

Often, children from low-income families are unable to receive the same summer enrichment as other kids. That’s where the critical work of our country’s nonprofit organizations come in. Organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America create innovative, quality programming throughout the summer that ensures all children, no matter their background, are empowered socially and academically.

To help support their mission-critical work, Boys & Girls Clubs across America invest in hedge funds. The Boys & Girls Club of Boston, for example, invests nearly $26 million in hedge funds to support its efforts to help young people build strong character and realize their full potential. These essential investments allow nonprofit organizations to continue their dedication to their local communities, especially during summer break.

Nonprofit organizations and foundations across the country invest more than half a trillion dollars in hedge funds to ensure they can make a difference in the communities they serve year after year.
