Giving Back 

We at SBCC feel an obligation to give back to our community; donating our time and expertise to numerous organizations and communities. Giving back represents a core SBCC value, and one we encourage in each and every employee, associate, and business contact.

Through a singular and collective focus with like-minded individuals, SBCC helps students and young professionals lead productive lives and become great leaders for the next generation. Our philosophy is to support the communities where these students and young professionals live, work and play.

To help cultivate new philanthropic role-models who will inspire others to give back and to create a high-profile, mutually supportive charitable community that works together, SBCC has developed the following:


The Thought Leadership for Institutional Investing

The Thought Leadership Center
for Institutional Investing

The Thought Leadership Center for Institutional Investing (the "Center") is designed to be the global center for excellence in its field. While institutional investing continues to be one of the largest and fastest growing aspects of the $175 + trillion global capital markets, no Center exists that brings together the practitioner and the academic worlds on a fully integrated basis.



The value of a good mentor is immeasurable. Good mentors help to empower the leaders of tomorrow with information that will prove valuable down the line. Moreover, the best mentors introduce their new recruits to others within an organization and industry. As time goes on, professional mentoring often becomes a two way street by offering benefits to both teacher and student.

FISCAL (Financial Interns Supporting California) – Stanford University

FISCAL is a student-launched initiative that seeks to create experiential learning opportunities for Stanford students in public financial management in California’s state and local governments.  The idea of the Stanford FISCAL initiative grew out of a team project for Tanya Beder’s Stanford University course on policy and strategy issues in financial engineering. In this team project, the students that piloted the program examined the use of financial innovations in American municipal finance. One key issue identified was a lack of opportunities for university students to be exposed to financial decision-making in state and local governments. FISCAL’s goal is to help create such opportunities by starting a service-learning program for Stanford students.  

During the 2013 summer, the program offered summer internships to a small number of Stanford students to assist local Bay Area governments.  During the summer of 2014, the program seeks to offer up to 10 internships in the Bay Area and beyond.  For more information on this program, please visit
