Special-purpose donations

If you would like your donation to support a specific cause at the University, you can arrange this via the Amsterdam University Fund. You can then determine the amount you wish to donate, the objective you would like to support and the conditions, and we’ll review the options with you.

Establish your own named endowment fund

Named endowment funds are separate funds within the Amsterdam University Fund set up by donors for a specific purpose. As the donor, you determine the beneficiary, the conditions and the name of the fund – perhaps your name or that of a loved one.

You can establish a named endowment fund with a donation starting from EUR 30,000. If you would like to set up a long-term named endowment fund that only disburses interest accrued over the capital, the minimum donation is EUR 50,000. Named endowment funds can be established via a living donation or a bequest, and have a favourable tax structure.

Support an existing fund

If you identify with the aims of an existing named endowment fund, you can also opt to support to that fund. The Amsterdam University Fund administers more than 60 such funds. Please refer to the Overview of named endowment funds for individual fund details.

Other funding options

If you are interested in making a donation but do not wish to do so via a new or existing named endowment fund, please contact us to discuss the possibilities for supporting the area of your choice. We will be more than happy to explain the options.
