Ways to donate to SLU

Last changed: 10 August 2017

Thank you for wanting to support SLU! Your gift, non-dependent of size, makes a difference to the University’s continued research and education.

There are many possible ways for you to support SLU, whether you are an individual or whether you represent a company, a foundation or an organisation.

Contact us for assistance

Contact Christine Jakobsson, christine.jakobsson@slu.se or telephone +46 (0)18-67 16 82 so we can assist you with your donation.

Different ways to support SLU:

  • Single gift: You can give a single gift that is either unspecified or destined for a specific purpose e.g. research financing within a specific area. Contact us for a discussion about your ideas and for assistance to develop a deed of gift. 
  • Legacies: By remembering SLU in your will you can support SLU or even the research area that is close to your heart. Your gift can e.g. consist of cash, stock, property or valuables. Contact us for a discussion about your requests and for assistance to draw up a will.
  • Tax-exempt share dividends: It is possible to donate dividends directly to SLU without paying tax on the dividend. This way you can increase the value of your gift. You can donate dividends from listed companies or as an owner of a private limited company. Contact us so we can assist you.
  • Establish a foundation or fund: A foundation or fund can be a good way to create long-term financing of an area that you want to support. Contact us so that we can together develop the best solution based on your wishes.
  • Support from companies: Companies can in different ways support research at SLU. It can be anything from common research projects to pure philanthropic donations. Contact us for a discussion about your ideas.

We care about visibility and want to draw attention to every donation, depending on the donator’s wishes.
