Remember the University

Neue Universität

For many years, inheritances and bequests have been providing, to a considerable degree, the necessary financing to secure important activities in science, research and teaching at Heidelberg University.

Many people are committed to shaping Heidelberg University through their support long after they are gone to create opportunity for action for future generations. However, the necessary measures have to be taken in your lifetime.

Help us meet present and future challenges and make a bequest to Heidelberg University.
