The University of Gothenburg is today one of the country’s largest centres of learning with over 50,000 students and a rich variety of research.
Ever since what was then Göteborg University College started in 1891, donations from private individuals have been important. One example is the donation from Oscar Ekman which made possible the construction of the main University building in Vasaparken.
As state funding decreases in importance, in common with other universities, the University of Gothenburg is becoming increasingly dependent on different contributors and foundations. Donations and gifts are consequently very important for large areas of research and development.
By contributing financially to the University you are improving the prerequisites for increasing knowledge that can be of great benefit to large numbers of people – now and in the future.
