Your last wish can make a difference. Lund University receives considerable donations through legacies. These enable the University to take new initiatives and to start and complete projects that would otherwise not be possible.

You can also donate money to set up a foundation, which can be administered by Lund University and from which the interest can benefit education and research at the University. Setting up a foundation can be an excellent way to honour the memory of a loved one. You are welcome to contact us for practical advice.
