Haas Hearts is an initiative founded by UC Berkeley MBAs to address strategic challenges faced by non-profit organizations in today’s difficult operating environment.

Haas students live by the four Defining Leadership Principles. Beyond Yourself is the leadership principle that challenges us to put larger interests above our own and apply our skillsets for the benefit of our local communities.

Haas Hearts matches consulting teams (teams of student volunteers) to qualified 501(c)(3) organizations, and works with the teams to scope out curated projects. For one summer, the consulting teams work on strategizing and implementing actionable solutions to the organization’s biggest challenges.

The initiative culminates in a presentation day in the Fall, where Haas faculty, student volunteers, and the non-profit organizations congregate together to reflect on the insights and progress that the teams have made.
