Why give to Vlerick?

When you give to Vlerick, you’re joining forces with an institution that has the global mindset, entrepreneurial spirit and world-class research and teaching to make a positive change to society. It’s a unique opportunity to contribute to making our world better.  

Each investment we receive – whether it’s an annual donation or a major gift – helps to power our school, both now and for the future. So we can fuel the next generation of business leaders and changemakers who will make a real impact. 

Funds to support

Scholarship Fund

We want to attract future changemakers who will transform the lives of people around the world. But some of the most talented students can’t always afford an MBA or Masters programme. That’s why we offer full and partial scholarships. We currently give €1 million in scholarships every year – and we’re aiming to increase this by 50% by 2023. 

When you donate to our scholarship fund, you change the game for students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access our world-class programmes. 

Women at the Top

This community of professional women celebrates the power of female leadership and promotes a more diverse future in business and society. Members act as role models for young professionals and take part in reverse mentoring. 

By joining Women at the Top, you help young women to reach their potential – and fund a scholarship for a female student at Vlerick. 

Student Entrepreneurship Fund

If you’ve ever started your own company, you’ll remember the moment you decided to take the leap. Setting up your own business takes guts – but you also need knowledge, guidance and funding. We give our students and graduates an entrepreneurial environment to thrive in – and the seed funding to get started.  

When you contribute to our Student Entrepreneurship Fund, you give the next generation of entrepreneurs the opportunity to get their ventures off the ground. 

Dean’s Fund

To continue to develop future leaders and changemakers, we need to continue to raise the bar – by challenging ourselves, innovating and investing. The Dean’s Fund is made up of unrestricted donations. It’s an essential revenue stream that gives us the flexibility to pursue new opportunities and meet unanticipated needs.  

By supporting the Dean’s Fund, you help us to develop new programmes, support our faculty’s research, attract world-renowned professors and invite experts into our community.
