Contribute to science for a better future

If you would like to support the Utrecht University Fund, you might like to consider making a bequest. By including Utrecht University Fund in your will, you will contribute to the University's future. With your bequest, new generations of students and researchers will be able to develop at Utrecht University and in turn make a valuable contribution to society.

Consultation hour for bequests

Are you considering including a charity in your will, because you want to contribute to a better world? With your legacy you can mean something for future generations. The Utrecht University Fund is happy to help you, so that you can properly arrange your legacy.

Every week on Friday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. there is our 'consultation hour'. Robbert Jan Feunekes or Margot van Sluis-Barten will answer all your questions via phone or video call. For example, what is involved in bequeathing to a good cause? And what university goals can I contribute to? The consultation hour is weekly. You only need to register in advance with Doortje Hörst: or 030-2539622.

The Utrecht University Fund Foundation has Public Benefit Organisation (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, ANBI) status according to the Tax and Customs Administration. This means that no inheritance tax is payable on your bequest and it can be used fully for the cause of your choice.
