Another exciting year for the CampaignBy Susie Balch, Associate Dean, Advancement
2016 promises to be another exciting, busy year for Advancement as we look to close the Campaign. We have raised an incredible £97 million in less than three years, as well as banking over 83,000 volunteer hours. However there is still more to do.
The Campaign has already made it possible for LBS to offer more scholarships and is helping to fund the development of the Sammy Ofer Centre. It has also enabled the School to establish four new faculty chairs and two new research centres as well as seed funding for a third. On top of all of this, it’s helping us to attract more world class faculty, and develop an unrestricted fund to support the School’s strategic priorities.
This is everyone’s Campaign and none of this would be possible without the support of our whole community. From the faculty who give up their time to speak at events, to the staff who create an amazing LBS experience for everyone who visits campus, to the students who are donating their class gift. Your continuing support is really important to us.
As we enter the final year of our Campaign we are confident that with your help, we will reach our goal of £100million and 100,000 volunteer hours and we look forward to celebrating with you all over the next few months.
