Class Gift Fund

At their graduation ceremonies, Audencia’s 2020 graduating classes have the opportunity to order their class cuvée. Specially selected and personalised for these graduates, this bottle of brut reserve champagne from the Bernard Gaucher estate marks the culmination of their student life and their flight towards a rich and fulfilling professional life.

The Class of 2020 vintage is the result of the Millésime Audencia project, born from the collaboration between the Audencia Foundation and Mr. W (Florentin Cugnot and Valentin Bros, both GE 19, recipients of an Audencia Foundation scholarship in 2018).

For each bottle purchased, part of the amount is donated to the Audencia Foundation’s Class Gift Fund.

1 bottle ordered = €7 donated  

The Class Gift Fund was created on the initiative of the class of 2016 to help students in financial difficulty and/or with entrepreneurial projects. Since then, each graduating class has contributed to the fund, raising nearly €25,000 since 2016.

To support you in this act of solidarity, Crédit Agricole CIB and its CEO, Didier Gaffinel (GE 87), sponsor of the 2020 GE promotion, will make a matching gift in order to double the total amount collected.

I remain very connected to Audencia and like many alumni, it seems normal to me to support its development and its engagement in diversity and opportunity for deserving students” Didier Gaffinel.
