gsb-foundation-streams

The GSB Foundation supports four distinct aspects of GSB life, namely: scholarships, faculty, research and facilities.

It is not enough for the leaders of today to simply financially assist and mentor the leaders of tomorrow. There is an equal need to generate innovative teaching ideas, support ground-breaking research, build relevant knowledge and maintain a world-class learning environment at the school.

We call on all GSB alumni to support our initiative. Your contributions will help upcoming generations of GSB students become our continent’s future leaders. In doing so, you fund far more than the individual: you fund all our futures.

Contributions

The Foundation’s team will gladly assist you in giving expression to the specific contribution you wish to make and will ensure your generosity receives the recognition it deserves. Most financial contributions qualify for tax deductions.

The following options are available:

  • Named or anonymous donations to the endowment
  • Named or anonymous sponsorships
  • Bequests / leaving a legacy in your Will
  • In-kind donations (time or talent)

Gifts of money, equities, fixed and immovable assets can be accepted.

For more information or to discuss your individual contribution in the strictest confidence, please contact us.
