If you moved your money on Bank Transfer Day, your school can too!

Over the past decade, while the big banks have been faltering, defrauding, and getting bailed out, community investment has grown from a $4 billion dollar industry to a $25 billion industry. Some universities have taken notice, but most have not – simply because nobody has yet stood up and demanded that it be so!

Students across the country are telling their schools to break up with the big banks and bringing community investment to their campuses.

The following schools agreed to begin moving their money

  • Duke University
  • Fordham University
  • Harvard University
  • Macalaster College
  • Mount Holyoke College
  • Seattle University
  • Tufts University
  • University of Cincinatti
  • University of Louisville

Peralta Community College is following in the example of the City of Berkley and City of Austin and passed a resolution to completely break up with Wall Street Banks!
