About University Fund Wageningen

Since 1951, University Fund Wageningen contributes to activities that make a difference for the students, researchers and entrepreneurs of Wageningen University & Research (WUR).

Our mission

The University Fund Wageningen is the independent expert in connecting donors with special WUR talents and research. Through additional philanthropic funding, projects and talents that do not (entirely) qualify for regular funding can still be realised and accelerated. In this way, we increase the impact of WUR and contribute to the Wageningen mission. With support to fundamental and pioneering research, to thorough education of WUR students, to stimulating entrepreneurship; all three needed to find solutions to the societal challenges of today and tomorrow.
