The Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences is a non-profit and not-for-profit organization. Any profits are invested in teaching and research.
In order to achieve a balanced overall budget, KL relies not only on income from tuition fees and competitively raised third-party funds from research projects, but above all on support from industry and private individuals. KL is also committed to further financial support in the form of donations and sponsoring in order to secure the excellent education and research at KL in the long term, to plan for the long term and to further develop it creatively.
With your donation you support the implementation of research and teaching tasks.
You invest in the future of modern teaching and research in medicine and the health sciences as well as in the training of a new generation of doctors and health scientists - thus in the future of your own medical and health care.
In concrete terms, your donation will be used for expenses that are necessary for teaching and research - among other things for purchases of the KL building, machines and laboratory equipment, demonstration and testing equipment, etc.

Donation deductibility - new from 2017!
Due to the introduction of the "automatic employee assessment" for employed persons by the Ministry of Finance on 1 January 2017, donations to tax-privileged recipients such as the Karl Landsteiner Private University are only tax-deductible if you inform us of your first and last name(s) and your date of birth (DD.MM.YYYY). The spelling of the name must correspond to that in the registration form.
As a charitable organisation, we are obliged to forward this data together with your annual donation sum (in encrypted form) to the tax office. The donated amount will then automatically be taken into account by the tax office in the employee's assessment. An independent reporting of your donation to the authorities (as before) is no longer possible due to the fundamental change in the process from 2017.
Anonymous donations or donations without complete and correct details of first name, surname and date of birth cannot be reported by us to the authorities and therefore cannot be processed or deducted for tax purposes in your favour.
Of course, it is still possible to make donations anonymously, but you waive the tax deductibility.
Information on the new tax deductibility for donations can also be found on the homepage of the Federal Ministry of Finance.
The deductibility of companies as business expenses (§ 4 a (1) EStG ) is limited by the fact that the total amount of donations may not exceed 10% of the profit of the current business year.
For private individuals, § 18 (1) Z 7 EstG allows the deduction of special expenses up to 10% of the total income of the donor.
