2020 Goldman Sachs Gives Analyst Impact Fund Finals
Sponsored by the Partnership Committee and the Office of Corporate Engagement, the Goldman Sachs Gives Analyst Impact Fund is a global competition that builds on our longstanding culture of teamwork and service.
Each year, analysts from across the firm collaborate with their peers for a chance to win grants from Goldman Sachs Gives to support nonprofits of their choice.
The fifth annual Analyst Impact Fund attracted hundreds of compelling proposal submissions from junior employees, all aimed at addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Ultimately, six finalist teams from Goldman Sachs locations around the world advanced to the finals.
Teams were judged by David Solomon and the Partnership Committee on the following criteria: the impact, scalability and uniqueness of the proposed project; the team’s analysis of the project goals and financials; and the strength of the organization’s leadership and partnerships.
