LSE Advancement engages with key constituents of alumni and friends, staff and students, organisations and the wider community to further the strategic aims of the School and to increase philanthropic income for agreed School priorities.
The primary core disciplines of educational advancement at LSE are alumni relations, fundraising, communications, and operational systems. LSE’s Advancement professionals work on behalf of LSE to:
Engage alumni in the life of the institution as volunteers, advocates and supporters
Secure private financial support from potential donors committed to the mission of LSE
Communicate within and outside the institution with those who have a stake in the success of fundraising and alumni relations
LSE Advancement helps academics and departments to engage alumni with their work, and can help to find funding from and provide the screening of potential donors.
The student experience is significantly enhanced by Annual Fund-supported student projects. Students can also apply for part-time employment as student callers.
LSE Advancement is assisting the School as it develops its long term policies. The Research team provides screening of individuals, companies and foundations in line with current School policy.
