From Networker to Change Maker.

Every graduate is an alumnus, regardless of the academic year, degree or training course at the WU. Everyone is part of the WU Alumni Networkers, automatically and free of charge. We would like to stress that this was not always previously the case.

In addition, we would be grateful for your meaningful support. Step by step, with your help, the quality of the WU will keep on growing. 

Get involved by simply choosing which option suits you best. We welcome every and all forms of support: Each donation will help knowledge grow and ensure our continued excellence.

About Taxes and Cancellations

Flexible Cancellation

Your annual donation is paid to the WU via SEPA transfer for as long as you wish. Of course, you can at any time choose to suspend the annual transfer, change the amount or indeed cancel the transaction completely. Just get in touch with the WU Alumni Office for further assistance.  

Tax Savings

Under Austrian law, donations for the purposes of teaching and research made by private individuals (such as donations to the WU) may be tax-deductible, as long as the donation is not more than 10% of personal income. The WU is legally obliged to report the size of your donation to the tax office by the end of February of the following year at the latest. If you have an objection to such a report being sent, please inform us at alumni@wu.ac.at.
