The impact of your support

In the 2017/18 academic year regular unrestricted giving to LSE raised over £1 million for a third consecutive year.

Your unrestricted gifts had a significant impact on the people and places that make LSE distinct, supporting 70 projects.

Your generous support enabled:

  • 51 students were supported with scholarships and bursaries. This is the School’s largest philanthropic student support scheme.
  • Seed funding for the European Institute’s Generation Brexit research project, which is gathering young people’s attitudes towards Brexit in order to ensure their proper representation in the process. The project crowd-sources ideas and opinions from young people using an online social media platform.
  • Music Society’s teaching programme 

    The  society has been able to kick start a teaching programme at the school that will be running for years to come. Over 50 students have signed up to either teach or take part in lessons within the school. The funding also enabled them to purchase a large number of instruments stored in the new music room. 

  • The Beyond the Classroom SU Talks lecture series which aimed at opening students’ eyes to alternative careers outside traditional sectors.
  • Refugee Week

    The LSE Students’ Union was able to host the School’s first ever Refugee Week in February, jointly organised by LSESU’s Student Action for Refugees and United Nations societies.


As a new club, we still lack a lot of equipment. But now we are able to grow - this year we had our biggest turn out yet for the first race of the season.
