Funds & Donating

Our mission is “to make a positive impact on societal changes”. However, we can only do this with the help of our donors. Not all academic education and research is financed by the government. This makes contributions from you as donors indispensable!

With your support we can achieve so much more: giving more scientists and talented students the chance to realize their projects. An enriching experience for them and a boost for groundbreaking and effective research.

You can contribute in various ways. Whatever you choose, know that your gift is being handled by Erasmus Trustfonds and is in good hands: just like the Erasmus University Rotterdam, they have the ANBI status. Did you know that donations can be tax deductible?

If you have questions about donating or tax benefits, please feel free to contact the Erasmus University Rotterdam Funds and Donations team via +31 (10) 899 4307 or

Erasmus University Rotterdam has a special bond with the following funds:

Help students who are affected by the war in Ukraine

Erasmus University Rotterdam is shocked by the invasion of Ukraine and sympathises with everyone affected by it. The invasion has dramatic consequences, especially for our Ukrainian students. They are deeply concerned about their families and loved ones and may face financial distress due to the loss of support from their home country.

We would like to help them. To do so, we have established a new EUR Student Emergency Fund in collaboration with Erasmus Trustfonds. With this fund, we can provide financial support to students who are directly affected by the war and are currently facing urgent financial problems.

We need your support. By joining hands with alumni, students, staff, and other members of the EUR community, we can alleviate some of the most harmful consequences of this war for our students. Thank you in advance for your contribution.

Dementia is no longer a disease that can’t be helped. Research has shown that dementia could be predictable, and even preventable. And, at Erasmus University Rotterdam, we are researching how.

Professor Arfan Ikram wants to develop a method that could enable general practitioners to quickly assess whether their patients have dementia symptoms. The aim of this research is to be able to predict dementia better – and to discover new ways to prevent the disease.

However, to make this research a success we need your support!


Help to prevent dementia

Do you also think that it is important that fewer people will suffer from dementia in the future? Then support the research of Professor Arfan Ikram and make a difference today! Thank you

The donations for this campaign are processed by the Erasmus Trustfonds Foundation

Erasmus Societal Impact Fund funds innovative projects in communities in Rotterdam and beyond, that actively improve the lives of others, and also supports key research projects which help to challenge and change society for the better. 

At RSM, we already teach our students about the challenges our world faces. For them, just like many people in the world, it can be hard to know where to start tackling these problems. We want to empower them to be bold, take chances, and create solutions for these problems.

This fund supports experiential learning with a local impact. We aim to empower students to understand the transformative change that starts with I WILL do the best I can. You can support the journey of turning responsibility into action through small student projects of up to €3,000.

Continue the pioneering work of Professor Dianne Bevelander through a new fund that supports women and promotes gender equality. Over three decades at RSM, Professor Dianne Bevelander put gender balance, equality and diversity firmly at the top of the agenda – not just in Rotterdam but across the international business and academic community.

Now, thanks to seed funding gifted by the Bevelander Family, and with your support, the Dianne Bevelander Memorial Fund will build upon the work that Dianne started – amplifying new generations of fearless women in her memory.
