TPU and Gazprombank share a long history of cooperation. Recently, all freshmen of undergraduate and graduate programmes at Tomsk Polytechnic University received International Student Identity Cards (ISIC) from Gazprombank. ISIC cardholders can use the cards to identify themselves as students around the University campus and receive discounts in 130 countries of the world.
“We are very grateful to our partners from Gazprombank for their continued support and winning cooperation, says Deputy First Vice-Rector Alexander Zhuchkov.
It was Gazprombank that allowed everyone to donate to the University Endowment online without a commission using Visa or MasterCard. Now everyone who wants to join the community of philanthropists can visit the Endowment website and fill in a form.
The names of all donors without exception are listed on the website and each receives a thank-you note from the TPU rector.”
Over 50 TPU alumni work at the Tomsk branch of Gazprombank. The company recognizes the University’s role in regional and national economy and believes that its substantial donation could promote TPU to the next level leadership within the shortest time period.
Currently, the TPU Endowment assets amount to 24 million rubles. In 2016, the asset management company received a profit of 2.089 million rubles due to competent investment and distribution of funds.
