Donors to the endowment capital of Aalto University

Between 2008 and 2011, Aalto University received a total of approximately 200 million euros in capital as donations from Finnish companies, organisations and private persons. The government granted the university 2.5 times this sum in government capitalisation. This fundraising helped the University accumulate an endowment capital of a total of approximately 700 million euros.

The income on investing the donations have so far been reinvested, thus improving the university's capacity to focus on what is important to the University in the long term – research and education funding, and investments – regardless of changes in external funding.

The accumulation of the University's endowment capital was ensured by the Federation of Finnish Technology Industries, the Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation, Liikesivistysrahaston kannatusyhdistys ry, Teollisuuden ja työnantajain Keskusliiton (TT) -säätiö, Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland (TEK), The Finnish Business School Graduates and the Confederation of Finnish Industries EK.

We are grateful for all the donations we have received from private persons, companies and organisations, which together with government funding helped form the required initial capital for founding Aalto University.

Our development so far is a powerful indicator for the future. Research as well as new product and service innovations.that have helped in the creation of new companies and therefore also jobs and well-being have sprung up in abundance. We will continue our efforts for the good of Finnish society.
