About us

TU Delft is brimming with talent. Talent driven by a passion for technology and the ambition to make a difference in the world. Since 1925, Delft University Fund has supported TU Delft by contributing to research, education, talent development and entrepreneurship. With donations from alumni, students, foundations and companies, we help talented students and scientists to realise their ambitions and make an impact on society.

The team of Delft University Fund works together to reinforce research, education and individual talent development at TU Delft. The board consists of representatives from the top of business, private equity & banking, consultancy and the executive board of TU Delft.

With donations from alumni, employees, private individuals, foundations and companies that support science, we enable talented students and scientists to realise their ambitions and realise social impact.

Acceptance of donations

One of the strategic priorities is to realize an increase of the incoming funds via donations (4th money stream funding). The aim of the Protocol acceptance of donations by Delft University of Technology is to treat all donations in a consistent manner, and accept donations in a responsible manner. This protocol applies to all financial donations to TU Delft, both direct donations and indirect donations via Delft University Fund.
