(Post grading) Donaciones *a* las Universidades

Porque aquí se refiere a que las reciben, no a que las Universidades las dan (que también puede ser).

... Asimismo es necesario disponer de incentivos fiscales específicos que propicien las aportaciones externas
y las *donaciones a las Universidades*.
Un saludo, Andrés.
