Why make a donation?

The emlyon Foundation is for all those who feel close to emlyon or are sensitive to its projects: Alumni, executive directors and managers who took a higher education program, students and their families, members of the various governance boards, collaborators, philanthropists and foundations redistributing in education, active companies close to our campuses... Its purpose is also to invite the whole emlyon community and its friends to tackle the School's future and its orientation towards common good. The School relies on a strong financial model, a powerful brand and a solid reputation. Via the Foundation, benefactors can be directly involved in the density of the youngsters' student lives and their aspirations to shape a fairer society, with more solidarity and respect for the planet.

A few reasons to take actions with the emlyon Foundation according to benefactors

“I make donations because I am especially fond of emlyon business school. The courses I took there were of great quality, just like the network I started building then. It is something I was able to rely on in my career.”

“I'm going to help out because, with insight, I was very lucky to join that school. More than 20 years later, I still see my then-classmates and I have many professional relationships with alumni.”

“Even if it is still rare in France, it's the idea to give back, even just a little, to my school where I received a lot.”

“I make donations so that the School is strong and that our degrees remain as valuable.”

“I grew so much by being a business manager. I am proud to support the emlyon Foundation and sensitive to its endeavors to encourage the “atypical profiles” we need in our teams, to join selective training programs.”
