Building a better future together

In a short period of time, Aalto University has developed into a multidisciplinary community of bold innovators who solve some of the greatest challenges of our time. This would not have been possible without our supporters.

Donations have enabled developing our university in the long term and balancing out the sometimes unexpected fluctuations in public funding. Given the growing pressure on public finances, donor support is vital to our operations. Together, we can build a better future for all of us.

Thank you for making a difference.
