SOAS University of London

Development, Alumni and External Engagement Directorate


Philanthropic donations and other support from alumni and friends of SOAS bring multiple benefits to the life and work of the School. Such support can help create additional learning resources, enhance academic and social facilities, and provide scholarships to ensure that we continue to attract the best students from all backgrounds.

The Development team, supported by the Development Operations team, builds relationships to secure transformational philanthropic funding for SOAS's key projects helping to provide world-class facilities, and attract leading academics and a diverse and talented student body.

SOAS seeks and accepts philanthropic gifts in accordance with the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) guidelines: CASE Europe - Ethical Principles Behind the Acceptance of Gifts.

SOAS has in place a Gift Acceptance Procedure, and a Gift Acceptance Record.
