(Update 21 April) We'll go on! The initial fundraising goal for the emergency fund has been reached, thanks to your many heartwarming donations. But the crowdfunding will continue and your donation is still very welcome. At the moment we are busy preparing the application procedure and investigating what these students need. We strive to help as many students in need as possible on a short term, and still need your support to make that possible. Thank you!


We are all experiencing on a daily basis the consequences of the quickly spreading coronavirus. This is a time of great uncertainty, also for Wageningen students. The university is doing its absolute best to help them through these tough times. Nonetheless, there are still students who were already facing difficulties and now require extra support. They have to delay their studies and find themselves in acute financial need because of ceasing income.

A small financial contribution can go a very long way for these students. University Fund Wageningen has therefore set up an emergency fund which, with your support, can ensure that everyone can continue their studies safely and securely. The WUR mission is ‘to connect for quality of life’ and that has perhaps never been more relevant!

Please help and make a donation today. If we all give a little, together we can make an enormous difference in students’ lives.

University Fund Wageningen and WUR will jointly ensure that your contribution is used where it matters most.

Is my donation on this crowdfunding platform tax-deductible?

Yes, your donation is tax-deductible. The Wageningen University Fund is registered with the tax authorities as a Public Benefit Organisation (ANBI) and therefore any gift, also to crowdfunding, is deductible from income tax under the terms and conditions of the Dutch tax authorities. This applies if you pay taxes in the Netherlands.


Why do I have to fill out so many details when I want to donate?

It is possible to donate anonimously. To do so, please check the box of 'Don't show my name to website visitors'. If this has gone wrong, you can contact and we will manually change it. In any case, only your first name will be visible on the platform. 

To be able to thank you we ask for your email adress and your name. Because this project does not offer any returns or thank you gifts, we do not ask for your adress.
