Philanthropy and Building Capital Club will be focused on presenting to students the benefits of sustainable investing- presenting to them the power of starting early in their investing careers, "buy and hold" strategies to build wealth through compound interest, and establishing financial plans to help them achieve their goals and provide for their future and their family's future. We will also look at sustainable investing by examining businesses that line up with our individual moral principles and how to research companies to find out if they are "doing the right thing" be it in addressing the environment, responses to equality issues in race and sex, and the traditional philantropic giving that our major corporations participate in. Overall, we will focus not only on personal financial well-being but also that our students can sleep at night, knowing that they have chosen investments that benefit themselves and also the world around us.

"I cannot walk alone." If there was ever a way to summarize how I am fulfilled, how I am saved, how I am made whole, how I learn, it's the preceding quote.

In the friendship that brotherhood is, I'm strengthened and encouraged - made to be better.
