SKEMA Development Fund offers companies and individual donors the opportunity to contribute to funding the three priorities SKEMA has chosen in order to become an international reference for management in the knowledge economy.
1/ Campus development. Develop the multi-campus structure through making improvements to the organization and technology of all five national and international campuses (Lille, Sophia, Paris, Suzhou, Raleigh).
2/ Pedagogical development. Encourage excellence in teaching, learning and research at SKEMA by recruiting internationally experienced professors, creating chairs and new research programmes and awarding scholarships for the most gifted international students.
3/ Student success. Reinforce diversity amongst our student body and enhance their career opportunities. We want to grant more scholarships for the brightest students, make SKEMA totally accessible for the handicapped and encourage students and alumni to contribute to creating innovative firms.
Fundraising and tax

The reduction is equal to 60% of the sum contributed limited to 0.5% of turnover. Individual donors who are French taxpayers are entitled to an income tax reduction amounting to 66% of the donated sum limited to 20% of their taxable income. For example, a donation of €2000 will cost the donor only €680. The SKEMA Foundation provides receipts for the tax authorities.
