TUM University Foundation

The TUM University Foundation was set up to give the Technical University of Munich the speed and agility it needs to respond to new trends, attract the best talent and promote promising young scientists. As a dynamic fundraising platform, it gives the university entrepreneurial headroom beyond government funding.

Established in 2010 by both private and business patrons, the TUM University Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to systematically supporting TUM and promoting academic excellence. Since then, many new donors have come on board, most notably from the university’s network of alumni. Today, it ranks as one of Germany’s largest university foundations.

"In times of crisis, university education and scientific discourse can and should also be carried out online, as our future lies in the qualification and performance capabilities of young talents. For this reason, the BMW Group is supporting the Technical University of Munich with one million Euros in order to ensure the near-term establishment of capacities and infrastructure for the extensive digitalisation of  teaching contents."
