The Prospect Development team is the key source of information about Imperial’s alumni, friends and potential supporters and their relationship with Imperial College.

We aim to help the College better understand its supporters (alumni, donors, charitable trusts, corporate partners and others) and to identify where their individual interests resonate most with College activities and fundraising priorities. We  provide staff with the targeted information they need to be strategic in cultivating relationships with donors and potential supporters.

Core activities

  • Identifying new potential supporters who may be interested in supporting the College with a gift or by sharing their expertise or connections.
  • Researching the professional and philanthropic interests of the College’s friends, working with Advancement and College staff to gather the information needed to cultivate meaningful relationships between the College and its wider community.
  • Tracking interactions between the College and its friend, alumni and supporters, enabling us to maintain an overview of these relationships as they develop over time.  
  • Conducting due diligence checks on philanthropic donations received by the College. We carry out the checks required by Imperial’s gift acceptance policy, to ensure that all donations accepted by College are in line with its mission and ethical standards.
