Friends of Imperial College is a charity heavily reliant on ticket revenue at in-person events alongside the annual Membership subscriptions to fund the running of Friends and provide inspiration through education.

As you can imagine we have been severely impacted over the last year by the loss of income due to the pandemic.

With many Friends supporting us last summer we were able to set up and run our current programme of events for 2020-21. We hope you are enjoying these events exploring the wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge discoveries at Imperial.

However, given the virtual nature of these events, they do not generate the income we need to continue.  

On the horizon is the next programme to create. We would really welcome donations to enable us to organise and run our programme of events for the academic year 2021-22.

We hope you can help!

Each donation will help Friends continue to:
  • Provide an exciting and enthralling 2021-22 programme of events – both online and in-person when possible
  • Bring the best, most interesting, most challenging and most important scientific developments from Imperial and beyond to the widest possible audience through public lectures and unique visits
  • Inspire the next generation of young students, giving schools free tickets to all in-person public lectures.
How to donate:

Donations are particularly valuable to Friends as they can be augmented by Gift Aid for qualifying donors, adding a further 25% to the donation.

Thank you so much!

Your support allows us to continue to provide inspiration through education
