Call to action
Thank you to everyone who donated in response to our annual telephone campaign. This year our student callers had nearly 4,000 conversations with alumni around the world, who together pledged nearly £280,000 to the College.
70 people made the special decision to remember Imperial in their Will. In doing so, they become members of the Queen’s Tower Society, which celebrates all those who are investing in Imperial's future through a legacy gift.
£157,016 raised for the President's Scholarship Fund
1,338 donors generously gave £157,016 to the President’s Scholarship Fund which will support 46 of our brightest scholars.
Paying it forward
Last year, for the first time, we asked students to mark their graduation by making a donation towards scholarships and students support. This year, the number of gifts nearly doubled with 131 graduates choosing to help those following in their footsteps.
