Assessment of sources of funding
The School has drawn up procedures for the ethical screening of grants and donations, which were approved by Council in November 2016. These procedures can be found here. The terms of reference for the Ethics (Grants and Donations) Panel can be found here.
The Donor Charter sets out what donors to the School should expect in their relationship with LSE Advancement.
Responsibility for fundraising
No individual, centre or department should request a donation on their own initiative without first consulting LSE Advancement or the Research Division at an early stage. This does not apply to discussions with the Economic and Social Research Council and similar grant giving bodies over potential competitive bids for funds.
North American Advisory Board
LSE engages with North America with the support of our North American Advisory Board. More information found here.
