Sponsored by the Partnership Committee and the Office of Corporate Engagement, the Goldman Sachs Gives Analyst Impact Fund allows analysts to compete to win a grant from Goldman Sachs Gives for the nonprofit of their choice. The global competition not only expands Goldman Sachs’ philanthropic legacy, but also serves as an important tool to engage the firm’s analysts.
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.

Teams were judged by David Solomon and the Partnership Committee on the following criteria: 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.
