A donation to Linköping University (LiU) is a meaningful investment for the future: the research at the university increases knowledge for a better world. Anyone, anywhere is welcome to become a friend of LiU and contribute to advances together with us.

Our research is driven by of curiosity and a desire to translate results to real-life application. This is so both for new knowledge that increases our understanding of the world we live in and for innovations that make new products and services possible. An important key to our success is that we work across subject boundaries, and we collaborate closely with those around us. And with such unimaginable riches of knowledge waiting to be discovered, we’re not finished yet!

Become a LiU friend and make progress together 

Private donations are becoming increasingly important for universities also in Sweden, to enable them to conduct leading research and education in the long-term. Support from all around the globe can further reinforce Linköping University in our aspiration to consolidate our position as an internationally renowned university for higher education, research and collaboration. We welcome everyone who wants to work together with us to bring progress. Together, our research can take major steps forwards, humanistic values prevail, and knowledge consolidate its role as fundamental in societal development. Because if we who are able to change the world to the better do not do what we can, who will? All financial support to LiU is an important investment in a better future, no matter how large or for what purpose it is given.

You can choose to donate to a field of research that you feel is particularly important or invest in Linköping University’s continuing development through the Linkoping University Anniversary Foundation. 
Together, we will ensure that your donation, no matter how big or small, brings benefit not only close to home but also far beyond the campus boundaries. We put every Swedish crown we receive to work. And we promise that the interest generated falls directly into everybody’s heart.

Donate tax-free from the United States

Linköping University is affiliated to the King Baudouin Foundation United States, a foundation that enables donors resident in the US to support non-profit initiatives in Europe. Donors based in the US can support our activities in a tax-efficient way by making a contribution to the American Friends of Linköping University at the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS). Because KBFUS is a public charity, donors may claim tax benefits allowed by US tax law for their contributions. 

Thanks to Ingrid Bock

Together, we can achieve anything
