A Class Act: Making a Difference as a Class

Class Giving

This past year saw many of you come together to show your class spirit in support of INSEAD through your class gift. Here are just a few stories of how you and your INSEAD classmates have made a difference.

Reuniting for impact

The Class of MBA’04J had record-breaking participation for their gifts to the Dean’s Fund, with more than 51% of the class making a gift in honour of their 15-year reunion milestone. Collectively, the ‘04Js raised close to €160,000 – coming out top for class gift participation rate among all 15-year reunions, alongside the record they already hold for 5-year reunions. Their 15-year reunion was held on the INSEAD Asia campus in November 2019.

These incredible results were facilitated by a large and active Social and Fund Committee of 18 classmates led by Class Gift Chair Reem Al Rasheed MBA'04J. Speaking after the fundraising campaign, Reem said that the team built momentum by targeted WhatsApp messages a month prior and by encouraging those who had donated to spread the word as well. She said the biggest motivators for giving included scholarships for those in need, helping the school to continue to be a force for good in the world and boosting the school’s ranking.

Mobilising for Giving Day

Another class that made a huge impact was MBA’07J. Together, they achieved a participation rate of 23% for this year’s re-envisioned Giving Day, making them the top class for participation! Meanwhile, the Class of MBA’99J continued fundraising after having celebrated their 20th reunion in 2019 and, alongside the Classes of MBA’00J, '75J, and '09J, were among the classes with the highest participation rate for Giving Day. These classes – like many others – remain close; strong solidarity no doubt contributing to their success during Giving Day.Vijai Gill MBA'91J Quote

Class gifts are vital

Such gifts are testament to the unique strength of the global INSEAD alumni community, especially in such a challenging year as this one. They will go a long way in enabling future students to have the same one-of-a-kind INSEAD experience and helping to advance our mission as a force for good. Thank you to each and every one of you for your steadfast support.
