Benefactors' board

Private philanthropy has remained a strong tradition at the School throughout its history.

benefactors-board

The names below are listed on our Benefactors’ Board, situated in the lobby entrance of the Old Building. This recognises those recent benefactors who have provided transformational gifts to LSE, and whose level of generosity has defined the tradition of philanthropy at the School.

Past, current and future generations of LSE students and staff are indebted to these individuals and organisations whose contributions have significantly shaped its development and progress.

Each year the School hosts a dinner in honour of those listed on the Benefactors' Board.
