In addition to its general fund, the Turku University
Foundation has at present more than 60 dedicated funds.
From these it
annually awards grants totalling almost one million euros. The capital
of the funds has accumulated from donations from private individuals and
companies. Donors can set up their own dedicated funds or add their donation
to an existing fund.
The diversity of research fields at the University
of Turku provides opportunities for supporting different branches of science.
At the end of 2005, the sum total of all funds was more than 30 million
euros. The dividends received, interest and rental income, as well as
other profit from these assets finances the grants.
