UTokyo became a national university corporation in 2004, at which time the University of Tokyo Foundation was created to support the University's activities by strengthening its financial base. The Foundation's current balance is 11 billion yen. In financial 2016, the Foundation received 9,932 donations totaling nearly 3 billion yen, 29% by value and 97% by number from individuals.
