Activities and events
Philanthropy Day at LU
Philanthropy Day is a worldwide event that highlights the importance of philanthropy to our universities and society.
At Lund University, we also want to thank, and draw attention to, all those who in different ways have contributed to strengthen and develop our activities.
Donations are becoming increasingly important for Lund University, just as they are for other higher education institutions in Sweden. The government grants cannot support all research and therefore active support from the private sector is of considerable importance. Areas that have received invaluable external support in recent years are neuro research and nano research, medical humanities, Skissernas Museum (Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art), the Botanical Garden and Lund University’s Scholarship Foundation.
Support from private donors touches the entire University and the celebration of Philanthropy Day is therefore also a broad initiative involving all faculties through representation in either a project group or reference group.
