This project aspired to bring all of our activities under one roof and also to give us flexibility and a degree of control that would allow us to grow our activities.
How was this project paid for?
We are extremely grateful to The Monument Trust, for their exceptionally generous gift of £13 million to support this project. The donation follows a founding gift of £5 million in 1991 by the Trusts’ founder, the late Simon Sainsbury. That donation helped to establish Cambridge Judge Business School (originally the Judge Institute of Management Studies). The new building is named The Simon Sainsbury Centre in his honour.
The Monument Trust have continued their commitment to the School beyond Simon’s lifetime with this remarkable donation. The Fitzwilliam Museum is also one of the major beneficiaries of the Trust. The remainder of the costs have been met through a combination of a loan from the University and philanthropic support.
