Donating directly: here's how

An endowment ("Zustiftung") is an easy way to provide long-term, sustainable support – simply online or via bank transfer. It is a specific type of donation, which is added to the TUM University Foundation’s capital and thus generates interest to support research and teaching.

Bank transfer to:
TUM Universitätsstiftung
IBAN: DE97700202700010280880

Please enter “Zustiftung” (endowment) as your payment reference.
