Each year reuniting classes come together to raise money for their class gift. Our Reunion volunteers are instrumental in leading their class effort. Many begin encouraging support in early 2019. As Reunion approaches, this page will highlight the Reunion leaderboard, displaying the top ten classes for participation.
There’s strength in numbers, all gifts matter! You have the power to help fuel the School’s future and make a real difference with your giving at any level. LBS competes against schools with significantly larger endowments built up over decades of fundraising. Your support will help the School to remain competitive and seize opportunities as they arise.
Every gift - no matter the size - is meaningful to LBS and contributes to your Reunion class gift. Your participation demonstrates that you value your LBS education and your connection to the School, and that you believe in what we do. Your gift also encourages others to invest in the School too.
Giving back, no matter how much, helps keep the School strong for the next generation. Your gift helps LBS maintain its excellent reputation and develops the business leaders of tomorrow.
Donations to all areas of London Business School contribute towards your Reunion class gift.
The LBS Fund fuels all areas of the School. This flexible funding helps ensure the best possible experience for our students, that our reputation remains strong, and that we will always rank among the world’s top business schools.
Gifts towards scholarships help the School continue to attract outstanding students from around the world. They help to create a diverse, innovative community that is shaping the future.
Our institutes stimulate our faculty’s world-class research. The Wheeler Institute for Business and Development tackles the world’s urgent economic and social issues, empowering the next generation of leaders to make their own positive impact. Our Leadership Institute examines the challenges leaders face, from ethics to effectiveness, and raises the standard of best practice in global leadership.
We encourage you to give at a level you feel is manageable. Regular giving (i.e. monthly or annually) can help the School to be confident in its decision making, knowing it has the funds in place to realise its plans.
Alumni celebrating their 20th, 30th, or 40th Reunions may choose to make a leadership gift or pledge (£5,000 or more) to show appreciation of their enduring relationship with LBS and its future. In previous years, many alumni celebrating their first five-year Reunion choose to make a gift or pledge from £500 to £1,000 to show their support for LBS. Pledges can be made over a two to five-year period.
You can always increase your giving level at a later stage when you feel ready.
We will announce the top classes for participation and total raised at Reunion weekend on 4 May 2019. For your donation to be included, please make your gift by this date. We also invite all donors to make their mark at Reunion by adding their name to our Reunion donor wall, as a way to recognise and thank all who contribute.
All donations received by 31 July 2019 can contribute to your Reunion class gift, but unfortunately, we will not be able to recognise these at Reunion weekend if donated after the event takes place.
