Funding support

LSE Advancement aims to support LSE staff in securing funding from external philanthropic sources. With the contacts and resources to access international funders, the Development team| works with individual donors, and the Foundation Partnerships team| works with trusts and foundations.

These teams have dedicated contacts for different areas of the School.

The office has the expertise and sector knowledge to meet the needs of academics at all levels - from those seeking only a helpful tweak to their project proposals, to those with no experience of philanthropic funding at all. Below are some of the services we provide:
