A gift to the endowment is invested in perpetuity. Annual distributions from the endowment are distributed to support unrestricted activities and the restricted purpose(s) of donors.
The corpus of the endowment is never eroded by annual distributions. The annual distribution rate is determined by INSEAD’s Endowment Management Committee.
Building the size of INSEAD’s endowment fund is critical to our ability to sustain excellence in faculty, programmes, facilities and students. It enables us to attract the finest faculty, attract the best and the brightest students and conduct research to ensure INSEAD’s place as a thought leader and an innovator in the field of international business education.
