Act today, Impact tomorrow”: the HEC Foundation’s new campaign
On Thursday June 20, 2019, we launched our new fundraising campaign for HEC Paris, “Impact Tomorrow”, with the ambitious objective of collecting €200 million over five years.
Three hundred donors, representatives of corporate partners, foundation volunteers and teams from the school were present at the French Foreign Ministry on Quai d’Orsay to celebrate the launch of this historic campaign for HEC. We made the most of the occasion to unveil the school’s priority development projects, which we are committed to supporting over the coming years.
The event provided the opportunity to explain the school’s future requirements and projects to the whole community. It was also an opportunity to talk to our donors and give them a preview of the campaign films:
Several speakers explained why HEC Paris has greater need than ever of support from the Foundation to finance its priority projects and support its new financial model:
Delphine Colson (H.94), Executive Director of the HEC Foundation, Olivier Sevillia (MBA.90), President of the HEC Paris Foundation, Didier Kling, President of the Paris-Île-de-France Regional CCI, Peter Todd, Dean of HEC Paris, Frédéric Jousset, President of HEC Alumni, as well as Sabrina Herlory-Rouget (H.02) and Victor Lugger (H.08).
The HEC community continued the evening at the Alumni Association Gala held in the Petit Palais.
During the dinner, HEC Alumni organized an auction for the school, which raised €243,000 for the Foundation, to be used in particular for student scholarships based on social criteria.
We all need to take action to have an impact on tomorrow: the Foundation, its ambassadors, donors, volunteers, representatives of partner companies, the school management team, staff teams, professors...
For this new campaign, the Foundation is committed to supporting major strategies that will have an impact on:
- knowledge production,
- inclusion of all talents,
- the campus
Today, HEC has a new ambition : to make a genuine and lasting impact on academic and societal models through the new knowledge it produces and the education it provides.
To support this goal, HEC Paris must consolidate its model and accelerate the pace of its own transformations, on a renovated, multicultural campus that lives up to the expectations of students who come from over 100 countries.
That’s why we are launching the “Act today, Impact tomorrow” campaign and aim to reach the target of €200 million to achieve our ambitions.
