Who are we?

The VUB Foundation is affiliated with VUB and raises money for the operation of the university. A team of committed fundraisers is the point of contact for companies, organisations, institutions, and individuals who want to contribute in their own way. 

What do we do?

The VUB Foundation raises philanthropic funds from companies, organisations, institutions and individuals. Its policy is based on the belief that every philanthropic gift has a social return. Every contribution supports education, research, innovation or the heritage of VUB.

VUB. Every donation returns.

5 ways to support VUB

Every philanthropic gift yields a social return: the knowledge and insights created through your support flow back into society. And thus, you invest in society and help everyone move forward. 

As a company, organisation, institution, or individual, you can support VUB through a chair, a social project, a fund, a legacy, or a gift.
