Tilburg University Fund

Knowledge, research and education are indispensable building blocks for a good future. The Tilburg University Fund Foundation bridges the gap between university and society for projects and initiatives that need a financial boost. With your donation you can give students, education and research the support they need to make a difference.

We stay engaged

The coronavirus has the world in its grip and these times are confusing and uncertain for everyone. At the university, of course, we also notice the consequences. The campus is deserted and there are no events in the near future. For the time being, education is organized online. Behind the scenes, we are working hard on various initiatives for students and alumni. The Tilburg University Fund is active as always. We are available by phone (013-466 8701) or email (universiteitsfonds@tilburguniversity.edu). We hope you are well. We are always happy to answer your questions. Do you have a question regarding the coronavirus and Tilburg University? There is a special webpage where you can find all the information.

Help students in need

Several students are in financial distress because of the coronacrisis. One of the objectives of the University Fund is to support these students. After all, their future is at stake. As the University Fund, we are committed to provide a safety net so that students have the opportunity to complete their studies. The Board of the University Fund has therefore decided to make funds available. In cooperation with the Student Deans, the University Fund strives to minimize the impact for students when possible. Most students have already been accommodated by the amendments in government policy.  However, there are students who fall between two stools. You can help these students. With a one-time donation, you make a difference!

    "Looking back I see how formative my Tilburg years have been. The ease with which we could and still can study in the Netherlands and the enormous stimulus that comes from that, we really can do something in return. Giving back to your Alma Mater, according to the American model, in order to offer your university and future generations of students extra opportunities to touch others, appeals to me. That's why I became a member of the fundraising committee and a donor to this beautiful University Fund."
