ETH Foundation USA

ETH Foundation USA

Outstanding talent in research, teaching and entrepreneurship are key to tackling the big issues of the future. Through their support and their contacts, globally connected donors give ETH Zurich an additional boost and ensure that the university maintains the best possible links around the world.

For companies, foundations, alumni and private individuals based in the US, the ETH Foundation USA is the first point of contact for implementing funding goals and cherished projects. Together, we determine the right areas, organise meetings and visits to labs, and connect at events in the US and Switzerland.

As a public charity under IRS 501(c)(3), the ETH Foundation USA is tax-exempt and entitled to receive tax-deductible gifts, bequests and transfers of property.
