Donations with Impact

The launch of the Institute for Business & Social Impact in 2013 was supported by generous donations from Haas School alumni Allan Holt, MBA 76, a managing director at the Carlyle Group in Washington, DC; and Margo Alexander, BS 68, chairman emeritus of the Acumen Fund.

Investing well and responsibly is something Holt believes business schools can and should teach. “We can make money for our investors and do good in the community and for the environment,” Holt said of the Institute. “These are not mutually exclusive goals.”
