Featured Charity

Institutional Investor will be spotlighting the High Water Women Backpack Drive as its featured charity at this year’s awards dinners at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in NYC. Each $25 donation funds a school backpack for a child in need.

Backpack Drive
The annual HWW Backpack Drive helps thousands of economically disadvantaged children start the school year ready to learn by providing them with fully-supplied backpacks, as well as the vote of confidence in their futures that comes with this gesture.

In 2016 HWW provided a record 22,000 children with backpacks. HWW has supplied more than 108,000 backpacks since the drive began in 2005.

Your donations are maximized because of HWW’s purchasing power and the fact that most of the backpacks are assembled by volunteer financial institutions and their employees. The backpacks are fully-stocked with age appropriate supplies, including notebooks, folders, paper, markers, pens, pencils, pencil cases, dictionaries, scissors, erasers etc.

Help support the High Water Women Backpack Drive. Donate now


The High Water Women Foundation has been designated a 501(c) (3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service, which means that all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Congratulations to all of Institutional Investor's Award Winners.
