About us

Delft University Fund supports TU Delft by contributing to research, education and talent development. We support that TU Delft can be among the best in the world. We build a bridge between TU Delft, its alumni and companies. Our motto is: Team up with Excellence.

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 acquisition & 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.
