An increasing number of alumni are making annual donations to the Limburg University Fund to provide financial support for their Alma Mater and the work of its scientists. Donations from the alumni community are pooled in the Alumni Fund, which is administered by the Limburg University Fund/SWOL.
The Alumni Fund supports scientific research at the university and focuses primarily on projects that have a direct societal impact and that connect science with future entrepreneurship. Through what channels do alumni donate to UM?
- Annual campaign
Every year, the Limburg University Fund/SWOL conducts a fund-raising campaign among UM alumni on UM’s behalf. This includes contacting alumni by telephone.
UMbassadors is a group formed by a number of dedicated alumni who are in a position and wish to do more for their Alma Mater, and have committed to making an annual donation of €500 or more for a period of five years. UM organises a number of special events and gatherings for these UMbassadors. The proceeds of the annual campaign and donations received from UMbassadors go to benefit the Alumni Fund and its objectives.
An advisory committee is responsible for overseeing the allocation of financial resources from the Alumni Fund and the selection of scientific projects that merit the support of the alumni community. The committee is composed entirely of alumni; Gerben Willemsen, Karin van der Ven en Tijmen Vos.
