Donate, now or later. Science is worth it!

Would you like to contribute to scientific research and the work of new generations of scientists? Contributions from private donors are indispensable and facilitate new initiatives. The Academy offers various possibilities for making a one-off donation, periodic gift, bequest or named fund during your lifetime – or later – to make a difference for science and society.

Support ground-breaking research or special collections of an Academy institute

The ten research institutes of the Academy are national knowledge centres in the field of humanities, social sciences and life sciences and often manage world-renowned collections.

Reinforce an incentive programme

The Academy raises and manages private funds with the aim of boosting scientific research and knowledge exchange. The Academy focuses on young researchers in particular. There are grants for field research, study trips or professional visits abroad in the fields of ecology, behavioural sciences and medical sciences.

Ask the Academy to ensure the future optimal implementation of a scientific objective laid down in your will
