News

On behalf of the Funds For Goods team, we regret to inform you that the planned Gala on the 16th of January can no longer take place in person, nor will be held on the 16th.
The change is caused by the rise of the Omicron variant in France. Under the current regulations, we could not run the event in a way that meets our guests’ and our team’s expectations, as the venue and caterer do not allow us to serve drinks or food. In addition, we do not want to risk the health of the INSEAD community and the consequences of covid clusters, such as quarantine for all attendees.
For the Funds for Good team, this was an extremely difficult decision to make, after having been working towards this night for 5 months.
Luckily, with resilience and creativity, we have been able to come up with an alternative plan, building on the original agenda of the Gala: The Funds for Good Auction Night!
In this online event happening end of January, we auction the amazing items we had originally received for the Gala to raise funds for women in Afghanistan. You can bid on wine tours, outstanding art, Michelin dinners, and much more. We sincerely hope and believe you will support the event and the cause, and have no doubts that it will still be an experience.
