Donation to science, research and degree programmes

There are 16,600 talented students at Metropolia. With your support, they have all it takes to grow into a key role in international positions. In addition to what we teach them, they need to have a vision of the world and a bit of help to make it to the top and to develop their networks.

Donation to Metropolia

You can make a donation to Metropolia as a private individual, company or organisation. If you make a donation of more than 850 euros, you can make a donation deduction in your personal tax return  (Income Tax Act, section 98 a) or in your business tax return (Income Tax Act, section 57).

Metropolia has many things you can make a donation for, ranging from opera productions to technology laboratories, premises named after yourself or your organisation or cultural heritage sites under conservation. Research projects also need external donations. Funding is also required for scholarships for foreign degree students (from outside the EU and EEA).
