Support us

We're privileged to enjoy the generous support of alumni and friends who choose to express their support through philanthropy.

The Department still feels like home and it's great to have ongoing opportunities to engage with students and give back to them what I once received as a student

How you can support the Department of Economics

Every gift you make, no matter the size, is a demonstration of faith in our Department and an investment in the School’s future as a world-leading social sciences institution. Thank you.

Over the next few years the Department of Economics is seeking to:

  • Improve the experience for our students by investing in a variety of programmes and initiatives. 
  • Increase the number of graduate scholarships to support in particular our PhD students within the Department.
  • Invest in both early-career faculty fellowships as well as named Chairs to support world-leading academics within Economics.

But we need your help.

How your support benefits the Department of Economics today

A regular gift to the Department will help us plan and deliver immediate-need projects and initiatives which require flexible or additional funding. These unrestricted gifts allow us to invest in the areas of the greatest need within the Department.

Discuss your philanthropy

We can also help to match your generous philanthropy with longer-term priorities that enhance our academic department. We are currently seeking partners who share our vision of ensuring the Department of Economics continues to offer world-leading academic and research programmes.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how you can help the Department to continue to work towards its strategic priorities. We can work with you to build on your relationship with LSE and discuss how your philanthropic and personal interests can be fulfilled through giving opportunities that are meaningful to you. We also work with trusts, foundations and corporations to develop mutually-beneficial partnerships.
