Philanthropy at EPFL

Invest in our future

Contact us

At the heart of every donation lies donor impact. Impact on our students, impact on our researchers, and impact on society at large.

Whether you are an individual philanthropist interested in helping the next generation of great minds, a corporate donor wishing to support one of our strategic research areas, or a foundation looking to collaborate on a project, we ensure that your donation achieves the full impact it deserves.


Philanthropy enables us to continually invest in our future – by recruiting the best minds, providing world-class infrastructure for education and research, as well as encouraging innovation.

Through their generosity, our donors have contributed to state-of-the-art research, cutting edge projects, nurturing talent, and the continuous improvement of our EPFL campus.

As a Federal Institute, EPFL benefits from a charitable, non-profit status meaning that, in most cases, donations are tax deductible.
