What you need to know

Why does the University of St.Gallen need donations?

Donations from third parties have played a key factor in enabling the initiation and implementation of innovative projects at the University of St.Gallen (HSG) in its over one-hundred year history. Donations are an important supplement to existing basic public financing. They enable the realisation of additional research and infrastructure projects and student funding.

Will my donation be used effectively?

The HSG Foundation serves as a «trustee» of the entrusted funds, which it uses for the University of St.Gallen with due care, quality and effectiveness.

A donation from a bequest?

A bequest permits a contribution/donation in a person’s will in favour of legal persons or organisations without them having to be regarded as an heir. Please contact us if you have questions about legacies.

Can donations be offset against tax?

The HSG Foundation is a non-profit foundation as defined in Art. 80 ff.of the Swiss Civil Code (SCC). Donations can be offset against tax within the framework of the statutory provisions.
