Legacy giving

A single legacy gift founded the School 125 years ago, creating a global “community of people and ideas, founded to know the causes of things, for the betterment of society”.

In a world of economic uncertainty, political divisions, social transformations and anti-intellectual sentiment, amplified by a global pandemic, the need for greater social understanding and change remains as important today as when the School was founded 125 years ago.

A gift in your Will can help us continue to educate and train future generations to become critical thinkers, able to investigate the world and shape it for the better.

If you are considering supporting LSE in this way, thank you. Your legal adviser may find the following information helpful:
