Make a donation to the 2020/21 Programme appeal

Given the coronavirus situation, Friends of Imperial College had to postpone all events remaining in our 2019/20 programme.

We are highly reliant on ticket sales alongside the annual Membership subscriptions to fund the running of Friends and the ability to make a difference together.

We are planning our next programme of events for the 2020/21 academic year, however, we have been severely impacted by the current loss of event income.

If you are able to, we would welcome any donation towards the continued running of Friends.

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

Each donation will help to:

  • Provide an exciting and enthralling 2020/21 programme of events
  • Bring the best, most interesting, most challenging and most important scientific developments to the widest possible audience
  • Inspire the next generation of young students, giving schools free tickets to all public lectures.

How to donate:

Together we can continue to provide inspiration through education!
