Raffle Savers Donate EUR 15,000 to NIT

New PCs for NIT students: This week, Hamburger Sparkasse (Haspa) provided NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management with an early Christmas present. With a total of EUR 15,000 the bank is supporting renovation of the computer facility in the NIT building. The money comes from the development funds of Haspa raffle savings, LotterieSparen.

Students from all over the world live, study and work at NIT. The PC facility is open 24 hours a day in order to ensure that the challenging technology management studies are successfully completed. “Our international students in particular make frequent use of this offer,” says Verena Fritzsche, CEO of NIT. “State of the art technical equipment is a must for a facility like NIT that stands for innovation and digitization. Thus we would like to design the facility in such a way that students are able to work there without restrictions. We are very pleased about the financial support from Haspa savers and we would like to express our appreciation also on behalf of the students.”

“Haspa LotterieSparen has a threefold impact with just a single measure: Save, win and do a good deed. That can be done with ease and convenience,” says Stefan Sagau, Harburg regional head at Haspa. Every month, participants play one or more raffle tickets for five euros each. Four euros are saved by the raffle ticket purchaser, 75 cents are used for the raffle and 25 cents benefit a non-profit initiative. More than 500 facilities and associations in and around Hamburg are happy to receive donations. “Haspa LotterieSparen has been an institution in the social life of the metropolitan area for more than 60 years. Thus it is good for Hamburg and naturally for Harburg as well,” explains Sagau. “Kindergartens, facilities for senior citizens, school and sport associations, social facilities and many other local projects profit from the resources from our raffle. We make certain that the allowances are distributed among the widest possible range of institutions so that important acquisitions within many facilities and different areas are made possible.”
