In 2007, NES established its Endowment Foundation. NES’s endowment is among the first in Russia and it serves as the source of the long term financial sustainability of the School. To effectively oversee the process of building the endowment, and in accordance with the Charter of the Endowment Foundation, the Russian Advisory Board of the New Economic School made a decision to transform itself into the NES Endowment Foundation Board. This Board makes decisions on the use of the endowment income, facilitates endowment fundraising and assists in creating new partnerships with the Russian private sector.
