Remember to Support the Centennial Fund!

Last year over 800 people donated to the LSE Centennial Fund. In this Olympic year, you can help break this record by making your gift by July 31, 2012.

As someone who has lived the LSE experience, you know the impact it can have on your whole life – the skills, friendships and knowledge gained at LSE stay with you forever. But ensuring that LSE retains its world class status and reputation requires a great deal of money, time and effort from the entire LSE community. A crucial element of this is the generous backing the LSE Centennial Fund provides to the Annual Fund in support of priority projects in the areas of student support, research and teaching, improving facilities and promoting the diversity of School life.

The 2012 Olympic motto is “inspire a generation” - something LSE has been doing since 1895. The more alumni who give to the LSE Centennial Fund, the more it can do for LSE and for current students, inspiring them to give when they graduate and embark on their career.

By donating to the LSE Centennial Fund you will help to ensure that LSE remains the institution "where the world comes to think."
