2020 Annual Campaign Kickoff: The Power to Make a Difference

February 11, 2020

The HEC Montréal Foundation and Alumni Relations Office is proud to kick off the “Don de faire +” annual fundraising campaign, which will help get the new decade off to a strong start and empower the School’s major projects. The campaign features a whole new concept that puts people front and centre. The name incorporates the plus sign used in the logo, thereby putting donor engagement at the heart of HEC Montréal’s tradition of excellence and stressing the direct link between the act of giving and the broader opportunities it affords.

An act of generosity can change a life. A donation at any level to the “Don de faire+” campaign” can help improve a student’s financial situation, make it possible for someone to go back to school or reward them for their involvement in student life. By giving to the Fonds des bâtisseurs, donors are helping their alma mater groom the next generation of world-class managers and prepare tomorrow’s leaders to face the challenges of the modern business world.

“All contributions from our community, big or small, are a powerful driver for the School’s growth,” said Michel Patry, President and CEO of the HEC Montréal Foundation, and Mélanie Gagnon, Director, HEC Montréal Foundation and Alumni Relations Office. “The forward-looking projects made possible by your donations will let us keep reaching new heights.”

“This international exchange program funding made a huge difference. It helped me cover my initial expenses (deposit on an apartment, basic necessities, etc.) so I could focus on my studies as soon as I got settled in and make the most of my experience abroad. Now I’m working at the HEC Montréal Foundation and Alumni Relations Office, so I understand the impact a donation can have on a student’s life. I would like to let donors know how much their help meant to me. I hope to give back at one point and let others have the same opportunity. It is important for alumni to get involved: they’re the lifeblood of our community. Their commitment gives today’s students the chance to be their best.”
