With their intellectual creativity and cos­mo­pol­i­tanism Humboldtians enrich universities and research institutions throughout Germany and across the world. They are part of a worldwide network that now connects more than 28,000 Humboldtians with each other and with Germany - 28,000 valuable partners for researchers in Germany, and excellent ambassadors for German science and research in the world.

Foster the next generation of out­stand­ing, internationally mobile and globally-minded researchers by making a do­na­tion, which will allow the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation greater scope to provide additional benefits and develop new ideas and initiatives.

How we are funded

The activities of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation are primarily funded by the federal government. Over and beyond this, your support would help us to pursue important new avenues.

How you can support our work and our idea
  • Donate: Your donation will promote the next generation of researchers and their collaboration within the global Humboldt Network by supporting, for example, joint workshops or the international mobility of junior researchers. Click here to discover more about how you can help us.
  • Contribute to the endowment: Your financial contribution or testamentary gift to the Foundation’s endowment will be a lasting legacy, creating long-term opportunities for the Foundation and its activities in the Humboldt Network. In certain cases, it may even be possible to establish a named fellowship. Please click here for additional in­for­ma­tion.
  • Donation to the American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation: You may also foster the links between Germany and alumni in North America by supporting the work of our partner organisation, American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This is of particular interest to Humboldtians based in the United States as donations to the American Friends can be offset against US income tax.
