AUNE Student Joel Moyer Appointed Regional Social Finance Fellow

Joel Moyer (MBA ’11), who will graduate from Antioch University New England (AUNE) this spring with an MBA in Sustainability, has been named a regional social finance fellow by RSF Social Finance.

RSF Social Finance (RSF), based in San Francisco, California, is a financial services organization assisting initiatives in the areas of food and agriculture, education and the arts, and ecological stewardship. Moyer’s role is to recommend organizations in the Northeast that have high social or environmental impacts in those areas.

“Our goal is to lend funds based on the research and recommendations of our fellows,” said Ted Levinson, senior lending manager for RSF. “Furthermore, we see the fellows program as an effective way to expose more MBA students to social finance and to develop a pipeline of possible hires as RSF expands.”

Since 1984, RSF has provided more than $200 million in loans and more than $90 million in grants to nonprofit and for-profit social enterprises. This year alone, it will make $19 million in high-impact loans.

Moyer, a Keene resident, interned with The Carrot Project, researching indicators of farm sustainability. He was also a 2011 Venture Fellow for Investors’ Circle, evaluating business plan proposals. At AUNE, Moyer was chair of the student government and has been involved with the Net Impact chapter.
