«ETH Zurich would like to see a strong signal of solidarity from its alumnae and alumni* towards the next generation. I’m sure that together we can do this!»
Prof. Dr. Joël Mesot, President of ETH Zurich
«Every donation from ETH alumnae and alumni* for the Centre for Students and Entrepreneurs will be matched 1:1 by Fondation Alcea – up to one million francs. Your donation will double in value!»
*The match applies not only to all donations from alumnae and alumni, but also from other private individuals such as ETH members, and from companies stemming from ETH such as ETH spin-offs.
Thanks to the generous support of numerous donors who believe in the significance and potential influence of the Centre for Students and Entrepreneurs, realisation of the venture is drawing ever closer.
A total of 25 million Swiss francs have already been raised! In order for the project to be completed, further donors are needed to provide the remaining 15 million Swiss francs required.
By launching their Challenge, Fondation Alcea pledge to match every contribution donated by ETH alumnae and alumni* 1:1 – up to one million Swiss francs. A chance for the project to take another huge step forward!
