Friends of TSIBA Switzerland
The TSIBA Business School Bursary Fund campaign supports ambitious young South Africans from under-served communities to access quality education.
Your contribution towards the TSIBA Business School Bursary Fund will enable ten exceptional and ambitious young people to graduate with a three-year business degree and to take South Africa forward as active economic citizens. TSIBA Business School tuition fees amount to CHF 5000 per student per year.
TSIBA has been the recipient of very generous support from our Swiss partners and foundations, with many of our students experiencing student exchange or employment opportunities in Switzerland. Such support enables our students to become graduates and ultimately active economic citizens. We hope through this campaign that many more TSIBA students will enjoy the continued support of our Swiss community.
The Friends of TSIBA Switzerland is an association (“Verein”) registered in Zurich, Switzerland that can accept charitable donations on behalf of TSIBA Business School in Cape Town. These donations are tax-deductible in all 23 Swiss cantons for Swiss tax residents. If you wish to receive a tax letter, please email our Treasurer, Donald Pudney, at donald.pudney @gmail.com with your name, the amount you have donated and your official residential address for tax purposes within Switzerland.
SOME OF OUR SWISS PARTNERS
"The TSIBA BBA degree exposes one to different aspects of “self”. The core subjects of Leadership and Self-development enabled me to be a team member and a leader when called upon a new dream."
