Please consider giving to the Social Enterprise Summer Fellowship Program, which supports students engaged in summer internships that create social and environmental value. Summer fellows have interned with local and international nonprofits, NGOs and social ventures, including the Robin Hood Foundation, the NY Department of Education, Enterprise Solutions to Poverty and Endeavor. Please give online.

These fellowships not only provide organizations with much-needed talent, but they allow students to apply their skills to practical issues faced by these organizations. Read more about the summer fellows’ internship experiences.


About Phoebe Boyer

Phoebe Boyer '93 was appointed president and chief executive officer of The Childrens' Aid Society in July 2014. She takes on this role after serving for 10 years as executive director of the Robertson Foundation, a family foundation established in 1996 by Julian H. Robertson, Jr. and his wife, Josie, where she was responsible for developing and executing the Foundation's national K-12 education reform strategy and for the overall management of the Foundation. She is the first woman to hold these positions. She is also the former executive director of the Tiger Foundation where she served in that capacity for over twelve years. Founded in 1990 by Mr. Robertson and the employees of Tiger Management, an investment firm located in New York City, the Tiger Foundation's mission is to break the cycle of poverty in New York City by offering support to non-profit organizations in serving the city's neediest families. During her tenure, the organization provided over $112 million to NYC nonprofits in the areas of education, job training, social services and youth development. Prior to joining Tiger, Phoebe identified and secured private funds for The After-School Corporation (TASC), an organization established to enhance the quality and availability of after-school programming. Before joining TASC, Phoebe was the assistant executive director of Inwood House, a social service agency that works with pregnant and parenting teens. While there, she was responsible for the overall administration and financial management of the $6 million multi-service organization. She also has several years of experience in the public and private sectors. Phoebe received a bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University and a master's in Business Administration from Columbia University. She currently serves as the Board Chair of the New York City Charter School Center and as a board member of Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory and the Dwight Englewood School.
