The University of Luxembourg is allowed to receive gifts that are tax deductible in Luxembourg on the part of donors, within certain limits set by articles 109, 112 and 168 of the Luxembourg Income Tax Act.

It is specified that in-kind donations to our University are not tax-deductible for Luxembourg tax purposes.

A tax receipt is issued by the University of Luxembourg for every gift.

NB: For potential tax deductibility in other States, please refer to a foreign tax expert.

In September 2013 the Luxembourg University Foundation was launched. The Foundation’s objectives are to support the academic and scientific activities, as well as initiatives of general interest of the University.

The Luxembourg University Foundation has been granted an initial capital of one million euros and has been placed in the professional care of the Fondation de Luxembourg, which will provide financial and operational management, as well as supervision.

It is also hoped that the Foundation will assist the University in attracting additional international funding.

Our Fundraising charter (in French, PDF) provides additional information regarding patronage activities and corporate philanthropy.


Philanthropy, to me, shares a kinship with entrepreneurship: the rewards, when successful, yield a deep-seated satisfaction that money simply cannot procure. Over the past two years, I’ve had the privilege of backing a diverse range of University initiatives through my family foundation. This includes lending my support to the pioneering Parkinson’s research led by Paul Wilmes and actively sponsoring the UL Incubator.
Fostering young entrepreneurship has always been a passion close to my heart, and I take immense joy in contributing to the University’s noble mission of molding the next wave of enterprising talents. It is a pleasure to play a part in shaping the future of innovation and enterprise.
