LETTER FROM FACULTY ADVISOR
The Herbert B. Mayo Student Investment Fund (hereinafter the SIF) provides undergraduate students an opportunity to develop and increase their knowledge of investments through the hands-on experience of selecting and managing the fund’s assets. The fund was initially created by a gift from a faculty member, Dr. Herbert B. Mayo, and contributions from alumni. Since its inception in 2000, well over three hundred undergraduate students have participated in determining the portfolio’s allocation and selecting individual securities to buy and/or sell. This process has improved the participants analytical and presentation skills in portfolio decision-making.
The primary goal of the fund is the growth in the value of the assets, however, the SIF distributes 3 to 4 percent of the value of the fund as a one-time scholarship/gift to incoming students from Ewing as a giveback to the community. The funds value the significance of its social impact initiatives.
If you want to Invest in a finance major’s future, I invite you to contribute to the SIF. To make a contribution, please visit give.tcnj.edu and indicate that your contribution is to be directed to the School of Business Student Investment Fund.
