An exceptional donation from Valérie Colloredo
On the occasion of the sale of her Parisian apartment, of which she had already given temporary usufruct to the HEC Foundation, Valérie Colloredo (H.94) wished to make an exceptional donation. These funds will be added to the endowment of her Sheltered Foundation, the "104 Foundation", which works for equal opportunities.
Valérie Colloredo (H.94), a major donor of the HEC Foundation, has been committed for many years to equal opportunities, and made an exceptional donation at the time of the sale of her Parisian apartment.

Olivier Sevillia (MBA.90), President of the HEC Foundation and Delphine Colson (H.94), Chief Executive Officer, sincerely thank Valérie Colloredo for her generosity in selling her property and would like to acknowledge her loyalty in supporting equal opportunities at HEC Paris.
