Giving to Lund University

With your help we make a difference

Lund University works tirelessly to make the world a better place. As a university, our mission is to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition through research and education.

Every day, we tackle the major challenges to solving the mysteries of cancer and diabetes. We look for solutions to human climate impact and global warming as well as irrigation and food shortage problems in some of the world’s most densely populated areas.

We also take on issues of everyday life – like developing new teaching materials to improve individual learning or weather-resistant and biodegradable paint.

Every gift counts

As a donor, you help Lund University maintain its position as a world-class university and leading agent of societal development.

Regardless of the subject or scope of the project, we can help you find something that you are passionate about – a way for you as a donor to contribute to a better world.

Generally, very few people are able to make a big difference on their own. But together, we can help create the conditions for major research breakthroughs. This also applies to resource-intensive investments in research fields such as medicine or engineering.

Academic integrity – a core principle

Academic integrity and freedom are the essence of all research and higher education. Whatever the source of funding may be, this principle must prevail to ensure that the University’s core values are not compromised. The University is able to maintain its independence by drawing up clear policies that are communicated to all benefactors.

Donations are not, and must never be, a substitute for public funding. However, philanthropy and private funding can often be a crucial key to unlocking further potential in our quest to understand, explain and improve our world.
