The University of Oulu fundraising campaign tops 10 million euros

The University of Oulu´s Growing Together fundraising campaign is in the final phase. Almost 1,700 donors have participated in the campaign donating over 10 million euros to support science.

Donating is especially topical at this moment as the government matched funding scheme is only valid until the end of June; matched funding will at least double the value of each donation. A donation of 850 euros or more is tax deductible to private individuals, businesses and other organisations.

The University of Oulu is thankful to the donors for their support. The university's donation capital has increased since 2008 that marked the beginning of fundraising to now exceeding 50 million euros. With the return of the donation capital, the university annually distributes several millions to research projects and funds the work of a number of top scientists. Through donations, many key recruitments have become possible.

By supporting the university, you help to create new opportunities for students and researchers as well as residents and businesses in Northern Finland. You can participate in the campaign until 30th June 2017 by donating either online at or to the Oulu University donation account FI08 8119 9710 0170 23.
