Giving

Your donation, big or small, makes a difference

Science and education are inextricably linked to universities, but also to progress and sustainable developments. From the discovery of DNA and antibiotics to the development of new energy sources and the finding of solutions for the world food problem, science and education provide the building blocks for a better world in the future.

Maastricht University is one of the world’s best universities, and our scientists, researchers and students work on the further and sustainable development of our society for future generations every day.

We undertake these endeavours on your behalf, though we would rather work on them together with you. A gift to Maastricht University is a way to personally contribute to the funding of ground-breaking research, allow the university to attract the best scientists to Maastricht and give students, regardless of their background and origin, an opportunity to study. Your gift, however small, will make a large difference.
