The School of Arts, Design and Architecture and its predecessors have been educating creative professionals for over 150 years. Over the years, our work has been supported by numerous individuals, communities and companies. We would like to sincerely thank all our donors for supporting the School of Arts, Design and Architecture: you are enabling the education, research and social impact of creative professionals for the future.
Your donations contribute to high quality education to try new things - and to ensure that Finnish art and design will continue to be of world-class.
Honouring of our donors
Every donation is meaningful to us. This is symbolised by the two donor art works designed by our students, Bread for the Coming and Huhta, located in the main lobby of Väre. The name of every supporter, who has donated more than €250 or more, is engraved to a donor recognition wall and published on the Aalto University website with their permission.
The list of donors is updated once or twice per year. Previous and new donations are added together, so if you have previously donated, for example, €50, a new donation of at least €200 will give you the opportunity to be featured in the donor recognition wall. The donor's name will only be displayed once, regardless of the total amount donated.
