Ways to support LSE

Thank you for supporting LSE. Your gift means a great deal to the School. 

Philanthropy is at the heart of LSE - the School was founded in 1895 with the help of a bequest from Henry Hunt Hutchinson to the Fabian Society, and donor generosity has underpinned the School's growth ever since.

By choosing to make a gift to LSE you are continuing that philanthropic legacy. You can target your support in a number of ways, each of which has a profoundly positive impact on School life and perpetuates the School's commitment to enabling understanding and change.

LSE Annual Fund

The Annual Fund harnesses the generosity of alumni and friends of the School to support a broad range of strategic projects and initiatives that enhance LSE.
