Several reasons motivated the Swiss LSE Alumni Association to transform its internal Scholarship Endowment into an external Scholarship Foundation: To get external regulatory oversight by the Swiss Federal Foundation Supervisory Authority, to avoid paying capital taxes on the endowment, to create new volunteering opportunities for LSE alumnae and alumni and to mobilize additional capital to help fund the education of future LSE alumnae and alumni.
The members of the Swiss LSE Alumni Association are one of the most enthusiastic supporters of the LSE. Wishing to leave another lasting legacy to their alma mater, members launched their Association into a new decade with a grand new project to support future generations of LSE students: the Second Decade Campaign.
In celebration of the 5 Year Jubilee of the Swiss LSE Alumni Association and in support of the worldwide Campaign for LSE, money was raised for a special Jubilee Gift to the School. The target of GBP 10'000 makes it the most ambitious fundraising campaign undertaken to date by an European national association of LSE alumnae and alumni.
