You can support the research activities of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) by making a donation. The core tasks of RKI are the detection, prevention, and control of diseases, more particularly infectious diseases. Within the framework of health monitoring, large-scale studies ensure an ongoing observation of the health condition of the population. The working basis for the activities of the Institute is research in this connection. Your donation is fully used for the research projects of the Institute. You can also specify the research activities for which we are to earmark your donation. You can do so by mentioning in the reference section an area, e.g. for AIDS research.

Please use the following account details for a donation:

Please note:

In order to preserve the transparency, neutrality, and integrity of official research activities, the Robert Koch Institute needs the written consent of the donator in view of the publication of his/her name, address, type, value, and intended use of the donation on the homepage of the Federal Ministry of Health and in the sponsoring report of the Federal Government. This concerns

  • donations by private persons exceeding an amount of EUR 1,000
  • donations of companies etc. (so-called “legal entities”), regardless of the amount of the donation.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept your donation without a written declaration of consent.

If you require a donation receipt (necessary for submission to the tax office, usually from EUR 100), we will be pleased to send it to you. Please let us have your address for this purpose (email:; fax: 030 18754 2328; or by mail: RKI Haushaltsreferat, Nordufer 20, 13353 Berlin).

We thank you very much for your readiness to support our work.
