In the history of the University of St.Gallen, which spans more than 120 years, donations from third parties have been crucial for the launch and implementation of trail-blazing projects at the HSG.Benefactors’ donations are an important complement to the existing basic funding provided by the Canton. They enable the realisation of additional research projects, student funding and infrastructural projects.
Benefactors’ donations enable trail-blazing projects at the University.
University Development is the central coordination office for funding partners. It ensures that benefactors will meet the right contacts within the University. In meetings, we listen to donors’ individual funding interests and support choice and square them with the options at the HSG. Possible commitments range from the funding of chairs and research projects to student funding and infrastructural projects. To be realised, funding projects must be in keeping with the HSG’s strategy and freedom in teaching and research.
Besides financial donations, the HSG also receives support in the form of time and know-how. University Development also looks after the organisations of the honorary senators, emeriti and the HSG Advisory Board. In late 2017, the new members of the HSG Advisory Board for the period of 2018 to 2020 were appointed. In addition, University Development organises events in connection with benefactors. In January 2018, it coordinated the President’s activities at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
University Development is in close cooperation with the HSG Foundation. Together, they pool funders’ activities for the benefit of the University of St.Gallen and make a substantial contribution towards the realisation of trailblazing projects.
