Make a gift

In 1892, it was generous support from thousands of individual donors that founded what is now London South Bank University. Today, financial support from our alumni and other friends continues to play an important role in the University and our future by helping to ensure that all of our students receive the best possible education and support. 

We are working harder than ever to positively impact the lives of our students. We are driven by our aim to change lives, build communities and strengthen society and we will keep working until the playing field is level for everyone. You can support our work, you have the power to help our students thrive and create opportunities for people who might not otherwise have them.

I want to support LSBU. 

We are committed to our donors and the following donor promise outlines that commitment. If we do not meet your expectations we welcome your feedback. Our Donor Complaints Procedure sets out the steps you can follow if you have been unhappy with your experience. We take complaints very seriously and will investigate and act upon every complaint.

LSBU's three main fundraising areas are...

Care Leaver

Hardship Fund

Student Prizes

Care Leaver Bursary

Many care leavers have the odds stacked against them, but this bursary exists to support them and break down the barriers that they face. We need to bridge the support gap they feel due to not having a traditional family network around them. Something many of us can take for granted.

COVID-19 Hardship Fund

As applications for hardship grants skyrocketed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, demand outstripped supply and we continue to support students even as we adapt to teh new normal. We need your help.  Donations will be put to immediate use, supporting students in unexpected and urgent financial need as a result of the pandemic.
