Give for the future

Now is an excellent time to donate

The Finnish government is running a matching funding campaign where it will provide capital to Aalto to match donations received by the university.

The matching funding campaign began in 2020 and will continue until 30 June 2022. The government funding will be added to the university's foundation capital. The initiative will increase the impact of a donation with a multiplier for each euro donated during the campaign.

A donation of less than EUR 10,000 is eligible for matching funding when it is allocated to the university in general.

A donation of EUR 10,000 or more is eligible for matching funding when it is allocated to Aalto University or one of its three fields of education: business, art and design, or technology.

Donations to the university totalling EUR 850 or more over one calendar year are tax-deductible.

‘If one wants to make a donation to help Finland succeed, the question is how to get the maximum value for money. A donation always has leverage, and a donation to a university has the most extensive possible leverage.

Competence creates future success. A donation to Aalto also supports the reform of university activities. The government’s matching funding will further extend the leverage.’
