Are you organising a birthday party, baby shower, anniversary, or retirement party in the near future? Perhaps you would prefer to support a good cause instead of receiving bottles of wine or gift vouchers that will just gather dust? Why not ask your guests to make a donation to one of these projects at Ghent University? Making a donation to support research or teaching at Ghent University can also be a nice way to commemorate the loss of a loved one. If you choose to support a UGent fund, you can also use our online action platform. There you can organize your fundraising action from A to Z, invite others to participate and donate to your initiative online.

I support a fund

Five reasons why it is best to coordinate your donation with the University Fund:

  • Your family, acquaintances, friends and colleagues will only receive a tax receipt if they make a donation directly by transfer to the account number of the University Fund (BE26 3900 9658 0329 - for donations starting from €40 on a yearly basis). If you collect donations and then make the transfer yourself, we are unable to issue a receipt.
  • After all donations have been received, you will receive a handy overview of all the donations and donors
  • You will receive a clear bank message in advance that your contacts can use when making their transfer. This means that you can be safe in the knowledge that the donations will be assigned to the right research or teaching cause. This also means that you can be sure that this information will be included in the overview of donations and donors.
  • You can choose from 1001 different causes for research or teaching at Ghent University. Just a handful of these are featured on our website. Whenever you get in touch with us, we will listen to what you want and ensure that you can collect donations for a cause that is important to you. 
  • You do not have to worry about the financial aspects, and can put all of your energy into organising your special moment. You can refer your contacts to the University Fund, and we will be able to help them quickly with any questions or comments.

This is why it’s important to get in touch with the University Fund. We will be happy to assist you further.
