De Howest Foundation

De Howest Foundation is een initiatief van Howest, de Hogeschool West-Vlaanderen. De foundation ondersteunt projecten en onderzoeksthema’s die inzetten op sociale verantwoordelijkheid en bijdragen aan duurzaam en globaal engagement.

Howest Foundation projecten zijn kleinschalig, maar toch ambitieus en met een duurzame impact.

Howest Foundation onderzoek bevat toekomstgerichte onderzoeksthema's waar Howest in excelleert en waarvoor ze langetermijn ambities heeft vastgelegd.

Als schenker bepaal je zelf of je gift naar een specifiek project of onderzoeksthema gaat. Je kan het ook aan de Howest Foundation overlaten om het geschonken bedrag vrij aan een project of onderzoeksthema toe te kennen.

Alle initiatieven onderschrijven het leidmotief van Howest: Give back to society, dragen de waarden - serve, empower, care - in zich en dragen bij aan het invullen van haar missie en visie.
