Impact through philanthropy
At the heart of every donation lies impact: impact on our students, impact on our researchers, impact on society at large. Philanthropy at EPFL offers a unique way to leave a lasting imprint on our shared future. EPFL’s strategic initiatives provide philanthropic partners with the opportunity to affect lasting, positive change on society by contributing to cutting-edge research, education, technology and innovation. By partnering with us, philanthropists can enable decisive scientific advancement, including recruiting the best minds, providing world-class infrastructure for education and research, and enabling innovation.
In 2019, as part of our university’s 50th Anniversary, EPFL decided to launch a new strategic initiative, The Student Support Program, which places its most important asset – the student community – at its core.
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.
As a Federal Institute, EPFL benefits from a charitable, non-profit status meaning that, in most cases, donations are tax deductible.
