(Re)live our collective successes in 2020
2020 was an unusual year for us all, of course, but it did reveal the full extent of the solidarity of our community towards the Foundation, the School and its students. In our annual report, see how HEC Foundation donors, volunteers and patrons stepped up to support students and finance new strategic projects for our School.
Donors and corporate patrons of the HEC Foundation showed remarkable generosity and solidarity in 2020 despite the difficult situation and we are extremely grateful to them. Their generosity allowed us to set up a solidarity fund in March to meet the urgent needs of students who were hit hardest by the lock-down. Nearly 300 donors responded and 147 students were able to receive financial assistance over several months.
2020 also saw major progress on the School’s fundamental projects, particularly in terms of research thanks to key commitments to recruit or retain professors, further research and develop new teaching content. Another highlight was the launch of the Hi! PARIS Center, which was the fruit of the work of our former Dean Peter Todd and was set up in partnership with Institut Polytechnique de Paris, driven by five corporate partners.

The Impact tomorrow campaign is proceeding well, which is very encouraging for the future and for reaching the objective that has been set.
We were 1,700 donors in 2020; let’s keep up the good work and aim for 2,021 next year!
Each donation counts. Thank you in advance for your support!
